Useful info

  • Course payment - we will email you confirmation of your place once you have booked, along with payment details.
  • Course venue - most courses take place at Ketteringham Hall unless otherwise indicated. We are in the Walled Garden and have a classroom, kitchen and loos in the Hall. There is signage when you arrive, but expect a couple of minute walk from the carpark
  • Address -  Ketteringham Hall, Church Road, Ketteringham, Wymondham, Norfolk
    NR18 9RS. It is about 5 minutes from Thickthorn roundabout, and you take the first exit off the A11 as you go south from the roundabout. 
  • In an emergency - if you are lost or late or need to cancel at the last minute call the number on your booking confirmation.
  • Mobile phone signal - there is patchy mobile reception at the Hall, so if you need to be in contact with others during the day you may want to sign into the wifi (we'll give you the code) and use WhatsApp.
  • What to wear - if you are doing a practical course please dress according to the weather forecast and come prepared. It can get really chilly if you are standing around watching a demo. If you are going to be digging you need to wear boots with reinforced toe caps (Screwfix does great cheap 'dealer boots' - yes, that is what they are called). The garden maybe muddy so walking boots or wellies would be a good idea. Even if you are doing a classroom based course we may well go outside to look at plants or design features during the day, so come prepared. You will be able to eat your lunch inside (where the loos are too), so you may want to bring your shoes with you to wear in the Hall.
  • What to bring - if you are doing a practical course please bring gardening gloves and a pair of secateurs (we recommend Felco No 2 if you need to buy some). We will provide all other tools. If you are doing a design course we will send you a list of what you need.
  • Lunch - please bring a packed lunch with you (unless lunch is included). There is a kitchen with microwave, so you can heat food up if you would like to. We will provide tea and coffee and a tin of biscuits for breaks.
