Following on from June’s Charlton Park Parksfest, Mycenae House & Gardens hosts a Summer Sunday Extravaganza on the 28th of July, from 12pm to 5.30pm.
It’s the sixth time Friends of Mycenae Gardens has hosted a summer garden party and they promise a family friendly day with dance, theatre, arts & crafts, and a packed programme of workshops and activities.
The Friends of Charlton Park aims to “develop the former King’s Troop training ground into grassland habitat to preserve and increase the population of endangered species such as bats, stag beetles and hedgehogs.
It won’t happen straight away – a ecological survey needs to be carried out to see what kind of grass is suitable, and the whole project spans 10 years. But this neglected corner of the park will start to look very different in a few years’ time.
