Come along to the Como Gardens Open Weekend, and enjoy the wonderful plants, displays and activities that will be on offer sponsored by Eastern 98.1 FM Radio and Seasol.

Como Gardens is a historic garden which was established in 1873 and contains uncommon and rare plants collected over many years. Over the weekend you can enjoy many great activities. There will be steam train rides, remote controlled model boats on the lake and live music that will have you dancing all afternoon.

There will be many lovely horticultural ferns and orchids sale and book stall from Rainy Day Books. If you're feeling peckish, a sausage sizzle will also be cooking and devonshire teas will be available.

So bring the kids along as children's entertainment will consist of a magic fairy tree, face painting, a ventriloquist and a puppeteer.

Como Gardens also boasts a fine Motor Museum which features many veteran and vintage cars, some of which include an 1896 Benz which is one of the first ever production cars and a 1927 Grand Prix Bugatti Type 35c which is still raced today. The pride of the fleet has to be the 1936 Mercedes Benz 540k and a 1924 Vauxhall, one of the first production cars to reach a speed over 100mph.
