Mountbatten is all set as one of their most popular events returns to Barton Manor next month (10am to 4pm, Sunday 22nd July).
Entrance is just £5 for adults, and children under 14 years old are free.
Over 1,800 people attended the event in 2017, raising over £10,000 to support Islanders and their families.
This year Barton Manor Open Garden with Mountbatten will be the only open-garden event held at the Barton Estate. So don’t miss it!
Live music and entertainment
As usual there’ll be plenty of live music around the grounds providing entertainment through out the day.
This year you can travel in style with the Pony and Trap rides and for those who enjoy the taste of summer, the Pimms Bar returns, serving up delicious ice-cold Pimms on the terrace.
The Barton Emporium returns with a chance to seek out that special gift for a loved one (or why not treat yourself).
Lots more to see and do
As always, children are well catered for with children’s arts, crafts and entertainment, as well as lots of physical fun with the Bouncy Castle and Slide, the Gladiator Arena and giant lawn games.
The Sea Cadets will be offering Kayaking on the Great Pond and the Army Cadets will be hosting bear hunts in the woods.
There’s plenty to look at and admire, with the Haven Falconry display and the Donkey Sanctuary – which puts on a ‘groom a donkey’ activity.
Food and drink
There will of course be good things to eat and drink, with tasty treats from the Mountbatten’s very own Sunflower Café.
Major fundraiser a firm family favourite
Jax Jones, Major Events Fundraiser, said:
“Barton Manor really has become a firm family favourite and has grown every year. This year looks set to be bigger and better than ever, so we are hoping that support from the Island community will be just as fantastic as usual. Make sure you bring enough pennies!”
Nigel Hartley, Chief Executive, said:
“This event is a major fundraiser to support our work in caring for the last years of life. We are truly grateful to all the volunteers, local businesses and the owners of Barton Manor who enable us to stage it every year. And of course we look forward to seeing everyone enjoying themselves in this wonderful setting.”
Entrance to Barton Manor Open Day is just £5 for adults, and children under 14 years old go free!
