It's 75 years since Enid Blyton's The Famous Five was published. To celebrate, the RHS Gardens have teamed up with Enid Blyton Entertainment and Hodder Children's Books to offer jolly japes all summer long! From storytelling and garden games to tea parties and magic, there are plenty of adventures to be had. Activities run from 22 July - 3 September 2017 (exc Rosemoor, with activities from 29 July - 31 August 2017).
There's so much to do this summer! Follow the self-guided trail and help Uncle Quentin uncover the clues about the Robo Bees, roll up your sleeves for themed crafts, build your own den, play garden games and settle in for storytelling. On 11 August you can celebrate Enid Blyton's birthday with a delightful themed picnic party.
