This year's NGS Festival Weekend is on 7th and 8th June. Thanks to the hard work of garden owners and volunteers, and the enduring enthusiasm of thousands of visitors, the NGS has donated just over £20million to nursing and caring charities over the past 10 years, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Carers Trust, Help the Hospices and Parkinson's UK.
