There will be a lot of work taking place in the gardens today as part of our exciting new project, Pagan Grove.
Due to this we are offering free entry to Holker’s extensive gardens. Visit the display in the entrance of the hall to find out more about the project and take the opportunity to get a sneak preview of Pagan Grove in its construction phase.
We look forward to seeing you next season to see Pagan Grove in its full glory.
The Ilex Bar & BrasserieOpen for lunches - including a very special Sunday lunch -
This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga. A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition. Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage. Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
