The garden, rarely open to the public, includes a fabulous walled garden and a new Mediterranean style gravel garden designed by Angel Collins. Clare Foster (Trustee Maggie’s Oxford) will be on hand to talk about the garden, alongside Angel who will be discussing the design. Local artists will be painting throughout the garden and Rachel Siegfried from Green & Gorgeous will be arranging flowers.

Maggie’s Oxford provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.

Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need. The centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.

The first Maggie’s opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 26 centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and abroad. See Ticket details.
