Celebrate the late summer season with spectacular colours when this popular event returns to the Northamptonshire country house this year.  In recognition of the impressive collection of dahlias at Kelmarsh Hall, a programme of specially-themed activities will take place.

The historic walled garden is home to a wonderful, varied display of dahlias, with over 100 varieties planted throughout the uniquely shaped heart of the gardens.  There will be garden tours led by our Craft Gardener and garden volunteers, flower arranging demonstrations and a chutney tasting to enjoy the produce from our vegetable garden!  With all these events and more, make sure Dahlia Festival is in your diary this September!  There will be a single entry fee to the hall, gardens and all the events during the Dahlia Festival: £10 for adults, £5.50 for children aged 5-14, free entry for under-fives.
