Full Description

Ballinakill, Co. Laois will host its inaugural ‘Twin Trees’ festival this year with a strong focus on the ‘En Plein Air’ outdoor painting event, tutored by established artists Jock Nichol and Bridget Flannery. The festival is inspired by the 150thanniversary of Sir Edward Lutyens, the celebrated garden designer who created the exquisite formal garden at Heywood Gardens, minutes from the village of Ballinakill. The festival will take place during Heritage Week 2019, on August 22nd, 23rd, and 24th

On Saturday we are delighted to welcome some direct descendants of Sir Edward Lutyens and also of the original owner of Heywood gardens to give a presentation on the history of the house and gardens. Sunday the 25thpromises to be a unique day hosted on the spectacular lawn at Heywood Gardens. There will be a range of interesting activities and events that promises to be a little different from the usual to delight all ages.
