Clumber Park’s rhubarb collection has reached the century mark. Clumber is now caring for over 100 rhubarb varieties to make sure they’re not lost to cultivation.
And to celebrate, Clumber Park’s Walled Kitchen Garden will be hosting a Rhubarb Jamboree over the weekend of 12th and 13th May, from 12noon to 3pm.
There will be rhubarb cookery demonstrations, themed games, guided tours, opportunities for tasting rhubarb varieties and a chance to learn how to grow your own.
If that isn’t enough to satisfy your rhubarb desires, Barkers Restaurant will also be hosting a rhubarb festival on 27th May with a six-course rhubarb themed gourmet menu. Booking is in advance, so enquire early to avoid missing out.
