Summer event: Around the World

As part of Festival Coast Live! we are hosting a series of fun-packed free garden events this August at the Russell-Cotes.

Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes travelled the world, collecting objects and treasures from every country they visited. We are celebrating the meeting of cultures with music, dancing, workshops, crafts, storytelling and more. Make it a really special day and pre-book an Afternoon Tea on our Terrace, overlooking the sea.
