Tickets for this event, called ‘Music in the Walled Garden’ are now on sale, at a price of £6 for adults, and £3 for children / concessions. The event includes music from schools Enfield Grammar, Latymer, St. Ignatius and Worcesters, also The Red Room, Botany Bay Jazz Club and some more local talent as well as Morris Dancers 'Etcetera' and a special appearance of Fifi the Flower Tot, face painting and much more.

There will be a Pimms tent, home-made cakes, jams, plants, and hand-made jewellery.

Bring a picnic, relax and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of the Walled Garden, there is also some special ‘follow me’ tai chi for people to try.

Jo-Ann Brown, Volunteer / Event Co-ordinator of the Friends of Forty Hall Park said ”This event is being organised because of the plight of the vanishing bees all around the world.

"We are highlighting the importance of protecting our bees by having an information stall and talk from local bee keepers at our event. We also hope more people will follow our example and avoid pesticides/herbicides, and plant more bee friendly plants and shrubs in their own gardens."

Cllr Chris Bond, Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment said "The British Beekeepers Association have only just confirmed that this winter's losses of honey bee colonies were the worst since records began six years ago, due to poor environmental conditions.

"The Friends of Forty Hall are setting an example by raising awareness of this issue, and using money from this event to plant bee-friendly plants in the beautiful Walled Garden at Forty Hall. But we need to offer support by making sure as many tickets are sold as possible to help this important work."
