There is nothing quite like the beauty of an English garden on a summer’s evening and Haddon Hall is offering this special treat to visitors during June and July when it holds some special late night openings.
During those two summer months, Haddon Hall will be running "late night Thursdays" when it will remain open until 8pm (last admission 7.15pm) and the Gift Shop and Restaurant will also be open. Visitors will be able to see the Hall in the late evening sun and enjoy the views across the rolling Derbyshire countryside from the beautiful Long Gallery.
In addition, an evening visit to Haddon offers the perfect opportunity to unwind after a busy day at work and visitors will be able to enjoy a stroll around the many different aspects of the gardens which are particularly lovely at that time of year.
Admission charges for this season are £10 for adults, £9.50 for concessions and £5.50 for children. Regular visitor passes are £18 and are valid for 12 months from the date of issue.
Another summer treat takes place on Saturday, July 13, when Haddon holds its very own “Proms in the Garden" featuring the Peak Wind Orchestra and soloist Edward Jowle performing classic proms favourites including “Land of Hope and Glory”, “Jerusalem” and “Rule Britannia”. The house and gardens will be open from 5.30pm with a variety of entertainment. The concert will open with an aerobatic display at 7.30pm and concludes with a great firework finale.
There are several ticket prices available - basic tickets cost £20 and for this you can bring your own low backed seating and a picnic or purchase a picnic at Haddon on the evening. Undercover seating costs £25 per ticket with tables and chairs provided, you can bring your own picnic or purchase one on the evening. Premier tickets are £50 which will provide undercover seating, elevated position and include supper.
