It's 75 years since Enid Blyton's The Famous Five was published. To celebrate, the RHS Gardens have teamed up with Enid Blyton Entertainment and Hodder Children's Books to offer jolly japes all summer long! From storytelling and garden games to tea parties and magic, there are plenty of adventures to be had. Activities run from 22 July - 3 September 2017 (exc Rosemoor, with activities from 29 July - 31 August 2017).
