Selsey Walking and Outdoor Festival 2022


SWOF 2022 :- now in its 9th year

We are back with two great events; the ever popular Selsey Open Gardens and our favourite astronomer, Dr John Mason MBE, will give one of his wonderful talks.

Welcome to SWOF 2022

The very popular Selsey Open Gardens will take place on the 29th May 2022. Planning is still in progress and we are pleased that we already have 20 gardens confirmed for you to visit. The event has been designed to offer an enjoyable day out, so whether its individuals, families or groups there is something of interest for everyone. Mature gardens, some in development and several gardens with a variety of styles and sizes showing what can be done in a limited space.

More information can be found here.

Please contact us if you are interested in opening up your garden or allotment to raise money for two worthy charities.

We are pleased to announce that Dr John Mason MBE will again be presenting one of his fascinating talks on the 11 June 2022.  As humans prepare to return to the Moon, Dr Mason will explain how local Selsey resident, Sir Patrick Moore contributed to the mapping of the Moon in preparation for the historic first landings, and will look ahead to what the future might hold for human lunar exploration.

More information can be found here.

We look forward to greeting you on one or more of the events.

Selsey also boasts some of the finest diving in the UK whilst the flat terrain and designated off-road routes make the area ideal for a family cycle ride.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
