Celebrate with us

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.  Our head gardener will be "Talking Topiary" at 11am, 1pm and 3pm (no advanced booking required).  You'll be able to enjoy a potted history of the gardens at Levens Hall, learn about the art of clipping topiary and how the methods have changed over the years, and discover how the pieces here got their names. 
  • Our shop is packed with all sorts of topiary-inspired gifts, not forgetting our delicious Morocco Ale and Clipped Bush beers, of course!
  • 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
  • Have your children, or school class write a story: ‘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.
