Hidden Gardens Event St Andrews

You’re invited to our 25th Anniversary Hidden Gardens Event!

The St Andrews Preservation Trust is delighted to invite you to its 25th anniversary Hidden Gardens event on 25 June 2023. Revealing some of St Andrews’ best-kept secrets, this annual fundraising event gives you exclusive access for one day each year to the hidden gardens of St Andrews.

What can you expect?

  • Find the secret doocot in one of the South Street gardens
  • Homemade jams, chutneys and textiles in the Heritage Museum Garden
  • Live music at every corner!

Jill’s textiles stall is all set to be a big hit, she’s been busy with her friends preparing a whole host of useful items and tasty treats!I love sewing, and although it’s just a hobby, I am delighted to give 100% of what you spend at this stall to the Preservation Trust. I make useful things like aprons, peg bags, laundry and shoe Bags, spectacle and mobile phone Cases, teapot and cafetiere cosies, cushions and draught excluders. I now combine my sewing stall with my Marmalade, Preserves Jellies and Chutneys and Irene Bennett’s ‘heavenly’ tablet. Friends who knit have added to this emporium of homemaking crafts with Gloves, Fingerless Texting Mittens, Socks and snug Woolley Hats for the St. Andrews weather! You’ll find me in the Museum garden at 12 North Street on Hidden Gardens in June and at our Autumn Fair in September.” Jill

The Hidden Gardens event is a staple in the Trust calendar

“Charity Trustees, volunteers and staff alike can feel the year racing towards our favourite fundraiser. There is a great sense of community that comes with the live music performances and homemade cakes. I would love to welcome as many local St Andreans, Fifers, and visitors from further afield to this anniversary Hidden Gardens.” Trust Manager, Sam Ross.
