Natasha Kaplinsky, patron of The Bevern Trust said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to enjoy this beautiful Sussex garden and its wildlife and help support the amazing Bevern Trust which provides outstanding residential care for eleven profoundly disabled young adults.

“I’m very proud to be their patron and support in any way I am able.”

The garden will be open from 11am to 4pm, giving people an opportunity to meet friends and family in the open air, sharing delicious tea and cakes and strolling around the grounds together.

Holford Manor is in North Chailey, BN8 4DU, and is not usually open to the public.

Tickets cost £7 per person with children under 16 free.

It is wheelchair accessible and has free parking, and organisers request no dogs attend.
