A Suffolk village is opening its gardens to visitors as part of an annual celebration.

This year’s Parham Open Gardens event is over two days on Saturday and Sunday, June 24 and 25.

Visitors to the village, which is near Framlingham, will be able to view a wide selection of gardens from small cottages to those larger the two acres in size.

Event organisers are also arranging ploughman’s lunches, teas, coffee and cakes on both days from the village hall, which is on the southern side of the B1116 in the centre of the village.

Parking is available at Church Meadow as well as limited spaces at the village hall and adjacent greens.

The event is also set to feature various stalls and games at several of the gardens, including one at which teas will be served from a “gypsy caravan”.

Admission to the gardens requires visitors to buy a programme for £5 from the village hall. Under 15s visit for free.
