This ticket-only marquee dinner marks the start of a summer celebration of the Stoke Prior and Ford community, taking place throughout the weekend with The Old Rectory hosting events on 8th – 10th June, with a flower festival at nearby St Luke’s Church on the Saturday and Sunday (9th and 10th).

The five-acre garden at The Old Rectory has evolved over the last 10 years.
