Open Gardens - Contributors

The Open Gardens Afternoon is a highlight of the Carnival programme, attracting hundreds of visitors from far and wide. This year we‘ll be doing things a bit differently with an online event. We’re inviting people to send us photographs and/or videos of their gardens which will be posted on the Explore Malmesbury website for the whole of August.

If you’d like to take part, please register for this event and you will be sent details of how to submit your entry, which should be with us by 1 August.

If you just want to view the entries on a virtual tour, please go to the Open Gardens - Virtual Tour event.

Here are some guidelines for entry:

  1. You can submit photographs, videos or a combination of both. We’re limiting submissions to a maximum of 20 photographs (in landscape format) or a two-minute video.
  2. The images will appear on the Explore Malmesbury website where their location will be shown by a pin on the map which will identify the road but not the property itself.
  3. We want to include as many gardens as possible but may have to limit numbers if we have more entries than we can deal with in the available time.
  4. We’d like participants to provide a description of their garden which will also be placed on the website. It should have a short summary/heading, and then a further narrative of no more than 200 words.

 Thanks for your interest and support.


We are not charging for tickets this year but if you enjoy the virtual Carnival events,
we invite you to make a small donation towards the local charities we are supporting.

Thank you!
