'Manor House is a jewel in Ilkley's crown' says Alan Titchmarsh

Over 300 visitors joined celebrated gardener Mr Alan Titchmarsh on a warm, sunny spring at the official launching of the new Ilkley Manor House Trust on Thursday 5th April as he rallied people to get behind what he described as 'the jewel in the crown of Ilkley'

There was plenty to do including creative and heritage activities that the Manor House will be offering in the future: children and families enjoyed playing street games in the courtyard, dressing up in historical costumes and making pomanders. Visitors joined Mr Titchmarsh, children from his former primary school and members of Outside the Box gardening group as they planted herb baskets.

We were absolutely delighted by the number of visitors who came to the Open Day and we would like to thank all those groups, organisations and individuals who supported the event and made it such a success.
Thank you for your support in getting us here.
