Pittsworth District Alliance and Gardens of the Downs have organised an open weekend on the 17th and 18th of April, 2021.
We have had wonderful rain and the town is looking fantastic after a very long dry period. We will have gardens open and buses running both days, morning and afternoon, North, South, East and West to outlying industries and agricultural areas showcasing the history of the surrounding Pittsworth Area with a local guide onboard. There will be buses also running from the main street to Beauaraba Living and The Grange Country Villas.
The main street businesses will open for extended hours and there will be markets throughout featuring only local artisans and producers. The Art Gallery will be open with the ‘Showcasing Autumn Art’ Exhibition. The Pittsworth Function Centre will host a display of images of the region by the U3A Photography group and a plant stall along with a historical display by the Pittsworth Garden Club. Schools and sports groups will have displays along with local craft groups. Children are catered for with activities and games including a jumping castle and petting zoo.
There will be 10 gardens open for viewing and the historic churches of Pittsworth will also open their doors. Entertainment by the local singing groups and local bands will take place on the Courthouse Corner over the weekend. All food and drinks for the weekend will be supplied by the local food outlets. A truck, vehicle and machinery display is organized and there will be car clubs coming through town over the weekend.
This event has been organized to showcase what we in Pittsworth have to offer. So, arrange for all of your friends and relatives to come and visit that weekend as it is going to be fantastic!
