Members' exclusive: win pairs of tickets for a very special croquet & cocktail evening at a private residence rarely open to the public - Trumpeters' House in beautiful Richmond upon Thames.

On the eve of Open Garden Squares Weekend 2019 (for which we also have a superb money-saving ticket offer for members), 50 lucky ballot winners and a plus-one each will be able to enjoy this exclusive early evening summer event, with cocktails, a talk and tour, a croquet competition and goodie bags included in your prize.

Standing between the River Thames and The Green on the site formerly occupied by Henry VIII’s Richmond Palace, the beautiful gardens of Trumpeters' House (pictured above) which overlook the Thames will host staffed croquet matches for Possibilities winners, plus a botanical cocktail bar.

Trumpeters' House is a private residence and not usually open to the public.
