Middlewick Open Gardens event to support two local charities

Wiltshire Air Ambulance ambassadors Nick and Annette Mason will be opening up their garden to the public again on 30-31 July to raise money for the charity.

The ever-popular Middlewick House Open Gardens event will also raise funds for The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust, for whom Annette is Vice Patron.

In 2021 the event helped to raise £52,000 to be split equally between the two charities, following a postponement in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Corsham event will be held over the weekend of Saturday 30 July and Sunday 31 July, from 11am-4.30pm each day.

Weekend visitors will be able to wander around the beautiful gardens and menagerie of animals, as well as seeing a selection of Nick’s classic and high-performance cars.

The family-friendly weekend will include plenty of stalls to browse, with lots of items for sale, including jewellery, plants, candles and art.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick will be firing up his famous BBQ for the event to ensure visitors are well-fed.

There’s also the chance to come and say hello to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance team and the Bobby Van Trust.

Entry will cost £8 for adults per day, with children under-12 entering for free. Friendly dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads.

Tickets can also be pre-purchased, subject to a booking fee. Visit to find out more.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance director of income generation and communications Barbara Gray said: “The Middlewick House event is always hugely popular with our supporters and we can’t wait for this year’s extravaganza.

“We can’t thank Nick and Annette enough for agreeing to hold the event once more, which will raise vital funds for our charity and the Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust.”

Jennie Shaw, director of The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust, added: “We are delighted the Masons are generously opening their gardens once more. The first open garden was 2013, when Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall attended.

“It’s a great weekend for families and we all look forward to welcoming you. Both charities are extremely grateful to the homeowners on Middlewick Lane; without their support it would be difficult to hold such an event.”

Middlewick House – formerly the home of Wiltshire Air Ambulance patron HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – can be found on Middlewick Lane, Corsham, SN13 0PX.
