A Walk in the Garden

September 29, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Come celebrate the return of Diana to Chatham! Friends of Chatham is hosting a once-in-a-lifetime sparkling reception to celebrate the glory of the gardens and the homecoming of the newly-restored statue of Diana on September 29, 2019 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm. This unique opportunity will include sparkling refreshments with Catering by Dori Farrell, self-guided and enhanced tours of the gardens, most notably to describe the demonstration garden area which pays homage to Ellen Biddle Shipman, the designer of the 1920s formal gardens, and answer your questions. The highlight of the evening will be a special guest performance by celebrated Broadway star Patrick A’Hearn—an astoundingly gifted performer, as we celebrate Diana’s homecoming and support Friends of Chatham’s ongoing efforts to enhance the formal gardens at Chatham, the jewel of Stafford County.

Tickets include special evening access to the property, refreshments, and the concert. They are available for $75.00 per person on a first-come, first-served basis as space is limited!
