Snowdrop Study Day at Shaftesbury’s Snowdrop Festival

Shaftesbury’s Snowdrop Festival is playing host to its inaugural Snowdrop Study Day starting at 10.00am on Saturday 15 February 2014 up high in this Saxon market town. Three of the UK’s top snowdrop and wildflower experts will be talking about these little white flowers that are their passion.

  • Soup and cake lunch at the venue.
  • Entry to a one of a choice of private snowdrop gardens in the area.
  • Free entry to Kingston Lacy on Sunday 16th February for ticket holders.
