Let's Celebrate

Join with us and celebrate World Topiary Day

  • Head to Levens Hall and Gardens and join in with our activities, sharing your day’s highlights with the hashtag #WorldTopiaryDay
  • Visit the Levens Hall and Gardens Topiary Garden and enjoy some mindfulness, whilst focusing on the forms and shapes or reimagining shapes into something else
  • Create your own piece of topiary at home
  • If you do not have the time to own real topiary, select some artificial topiary to love
  • Share your own garden’s topiary by posting pics on social media with the hashtag #WorldTopiaryDay
  • Tell us, on social media, which hero or historical figure you would create in topiary, if you could, and why. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #WorldTopiaryDay
  • As May 12 is also National Limerick Day, pen a limerick about topiary, or one of Levens’ pieces of topiary, and enter our contest to win a 2021 family season ticket
  • Have your children, or school class, enter our children’s story competition, ‘The Day the (piece of topiary) Came to Life.’   Simply choose one of the pieces of topiary from the Levens Topiary Garden to write this story and let your imagination run wild.  The winner will receive a trophy and a £60 voucher to spend on children’s gardening or nature exploration items at retailer, Little Pals, whilst two runners-up will receive trophies.
