Exclusively for members: win a guided tour of the impressive Rose Garden and Elizabethan Mansion house, especially decorated with roses, followed by a refreshing glass of rose fizz and a delicious afternoon tea.

As part of Rose Celebration Week in June, you are cordially invited to take part in our ticket ballot exclusive to Possibilities members and join us for a stunning summer's afternoon event at beautiful Borde Hill Garden.

Borde Hill Garden, near Haywards Heath in rural West Sussex, has been home to the same family for four generations. Colonel Stephenson Robert Clarke purchased the Elizabethan mansion in 1893, creating the gardens and woodland with plants brought back to England from overseas by the great botanists of the late Victorian era.

The garden is Grade II-listed by English Heritage and renowned for its rare trees and shrubs, set in 200 acres of parkland with stunning vistas. Laid out in a series of outdoor 'rooms', they include the renowned Rhododendron, Italian and Rose gardens.

Lucky ticket winners for this members-only event will enjoy a tour of the mansion, where a knowledgeable guide will bring the family history to life.

This will be followed by a tour of the Rose Garden and surrounding borders in the expert company of the head gardener, where you can marvel at more than 700 varieties of David Austin roses.

Your day will conclude with a delicious afternoon tea in the charming marquee, including a refreshing glass of rose fizz.
