Hanami at Brogdale

Hanami Festival – New Date
Saturday 21 April 2018

The weather here in the south east has been unseasonably cold and wet.
We have reviewed the orchards and the wet weather has delayed the blossom display and left the ground very soggy. We are concerned for safety issues and the quality of event we can deliver.

Brogdale’s Hanami festival has been postponed for one week to Saturday 21st April 2018 

The decision has not been made lightly, but we feel it would be the best course of action.
We hope you will understand our position and be able to join us when the spectacular display will be in full bloom.

Hanami Festival will take place on Saturday 21 April 2018

All tickets and passes valid for Saturday 14th April will still be valid on Saturday 21st April.
If you cannot attend this date and have purchased an advance ticket we will be more than happy to offer you a full refund. Full refundsare available up to the 20th April. Please send you’re booking reference details to orders@brogdalecollections.or
