Summer Trifle returns for its third year with additional events between May and November, thanks to a generous grant from the National Lottery Community Fund.

Trifle’ perfectly describes this wonderful mixture of arts, crafts, open gardens and cake. When you step into the grounds of Pickhams you enter a world of creativity. This year visitors will meet artists, take part in the workshops covering health, arts and crafts and be entertained with live music and more.
