Become a Friend of The Alnwick Garden

Your valued support will help towards both community and capital projects, and you will be an important part of The Garden’s family as you enjoy it through the seasons and the years. Much of The Garden’s programme is free, so as a Friend you can enjoy tours, workshops and performances all year round. Friends can bring up to 4 children per adult for free when you visit. Many family activities are programmed throughout the school holidays, which means you can also open up a world of creativity and activity to the children you know.

Below are the benefits you can expect as a Friend of The Alnwick Garden.

Friends Magazines

As a Friend of The Alnwick Garden, you will receive an electronic bi-annual issue of our fantastic and informative Friends Magazine.  If you are not currently receiving this then please get in touch with your email address and we will ensure that you don’t miss out!

As you will probably have now heard, we have entered Tier 4.

Unfortunately this means that The Alnwick Garden is now closed until further notice.

We always use January as our month for essential maintenance, so as soon as we know when we can re-open, we will let you know both here on our website and via our social media channels.

For anyone with tickets, please accept our sincere apologies. We will be working through all bookings and contacting you to organise a refund.

Here's to 2021... x
