Welcome to 2020!

Now the festivities are behind you, why not treat yourself to an afternoon of inspiration and prairie planting, without having to venture into the cold and wet of a January garden?

In just over a week, the Horticultural Society  is hosting its first film in Lyme.

On January 12th (Sunday) 3pm, at the Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis
Film – Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

Piet Oudolf is one of the most influential garden designers of the last 50 years. This documentary follows him over five seasons as he designed gardens from New York’s High Line and Hauser & Wirth’s prairie garden in Somerset to his own private garden at Hummelo in Holland.

According to The Guardian: “The photography is exquisite (sun behind petals, wind through grass, rain on leaves), but Oudulf’s melancholy philosophising is just as beguiling.”

Film length 75 minutes. Upstairs bar open 2-3pm, film starts at 3pm. Ticket price £6 plus online booking fee of £1.06.  Visit https://tiny.cc/ulrhs-film to book. Or call Tricia Boyd on 07767 261444 if you have problems booking online.
