Six independent nurseries, three businesses showcasing locally made pots and furniture and the Friends’ Plant and Book stalls gathered in front of the Museum to form an attractive market for Friends and visitors alike. The kind weather ensured good business for refreshments and the cakes made by talented Friends all helped to raise a valuable contribution to Friends funds.
The Holburne Ensemble were in sparkling form playing for Friends and guests again this year with Nat Mander masterful on the Schantz piano and Sam Brown on classical guitar. Thanks are due to Richard Frewer not only for his musical contribution but also for organising the evening, and to Trevor Osborne for supporting it. A good party followed!
Friends took a a privileged first look at the Holburne’s latest exhibition, enjoying the opportunity to socialise and meet with Friends old and new.
A misty then drizzly afternoon saw Antonia Johnson reprising her Bath tree walk in Victoria Park and the Botanic Garden. The friends who joined Antonia enjoyed a wide-ranging couple of hours packed with information about some very interesting specimens and tree biology.
