It’s On The Ball is delighted to be hosting an open day in the grounds of the Bishop’s House, Norwich. Join us for a relaxing afternoon in the tranquillity of this peaceful oasis in the centre of the city.

The Bishop of Norwich’s historic private garden is full of delights and has been described as hidden gem in the centre of Norwich which includes features such as a herb garden, ‘jungle’ walk, large wildflower labyrinth and fruit orchard, extensive shrubberies containing many rare and unusual plants, among these being a Hebe planted from a sprig taken from Queen Victoria’s wedding bouquet in 1840.

Limited catering will be available but you are welcome to bring your own picnic.

There will be live music performed throughout the day.
