November in the Garden

November 1, 2019

Dalston Eastern Curve Garden is open 12 months of the year, 7 days a week,  celebrating nature and the changing beauty of the seasons.

During the month of November, the Garden remains open every day from 11am until 7pm and until 10pm on Wednesdays – Sundays.

Our Cafe Bar is open daily during Garden opening times, selling our warming home made soups and delicious cakes baked at the Garden, as well as our selection of local craft beers, cider and wine. We operate as a social enterprise, with the majority of our income generated from our Cafe Bar. So every time you enjoy coffee and delicious home-made cakes or a mulled wine in the evening,  you are helping keep the Garden open every day and supporting our year-round community events and education programmes.

Latto’s Pizzas are served fresh from the wood-fired oven on Saturday and Sundays in November.

There are blankets and hot-water bottles to keep everybody cosy in the Garden!
