Hoby & District Village Hall

Following the success of our last Winter Lunch at Hoby, we will again be there having a lunch catered by Mrs Bridges and hope to show the film ‘The Gardener’ before the meal.

The Gardener is a film that reflects upon the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives.  Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and plantsman Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time ever in 2009. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over 75 years and three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century. Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.  See more in this trailer for the film 

Further details and menu choices will follow nearer the time.

This will be another fantastic Winter Lunch so put it in your diary now.
