Moseley in Bloom Open Gardens – This Sunday! 12th September

This perennially popular event returns on Sunday 12th September, running from 11 am to 5 pm. There will be 21 lovely gardens around Moseley to visit, plus live music, refreshments and a free bespoke bus service between gardens.

Tickets are available online in advance here or can be bought on the day; for ticket locations, see the Moseley in Bloom Open Gardens website here.

This is Moseley in Bloom’s major fund-raising event that pays for all the floral displays around Moseley Village, so it is not only a wonderful day out, it means we can have flowers again next year.

 

Moseley Farmers’ and Arts Markets – This Saturday! 28th August

Moseley Farmers’ Market and Moseley Arts Market will be held this Saturday 28th August, 9am to 2pm. The markets are “becoming more normal by having stalls closer together”, but the traders may still not be in their usual places so please do ask if you can’t find a particular stall or food.

The markets will be in the centre of Moseley Village and will have as many usual stalls as possible selling a huge range of produce to cater for everyone’s needs; whether it be fruit and vegetables, cheeses and wine, pies, beer or samosas. Everything available is guaranteed to be local and the produce is reared, grown or processed by the stallholders: it’s a certified real Farmers’ Market. There will also be stallholders selling non-local food for the benefit of the community such as olives, fish, unusual cheeses and coffee beans & tea leaves. These are placed on the edge of the Farmers Market area, with the Arts Market stalls across the main street.

Moseley Park and Pool will also be open to the public.

Please remain mindful of the guidelines to enjoy the markets safely; see more information here.

“Come with Daisyberry Willow the flower fairy to hear the story of the day the trees lost their voice; of battles of humans and fairies, of dreams and trees, creatures, mischief, voices, sounds, songs and silence. An enchanting story with a focus on relationship with nature for all young at heart. An hour’s worth of woodland magic and fun.”
