Lecture Supper: Madingley Hall Gardens: Past, Present and Future | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Now home to the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education, Madingley Hall has functioned at various times as a hunting lodge, a family home and a royal residence.

Discover more about its beautiful, Capability Brown-designed gardens, with Head Gardener Richard Gant. Richard will trace the evolution of the garden identifying the core features which form the framework of the site today. Historic connections between the University and the garden will lead to the work undertaken since the Institute of Continuing Education assumed responsibility in 1975, how the walled garden has been developed, and thoughts for the future. The finale will celebrate a star-studded line-up of our special plants.

The lecture will begin at 6.00pm, and will be followed by a buffet supper at 7.00pm where you can meet the speaker and chat to other attendees.

Tickets are £29, and include a glass of house wine/prosecco and supper. The grounds will be open from 4.30pm and if you would like to treat yourself to an afternoon tea, please contact enquiry@madingleyhall.co.uk.
