Visit Highwic during our Coal Range Cooking days and see, smell and taste cooking being done on our authentic Victorian coal range.
Come along to Highwic and hear Aaron Bertelsen talk about life at Great Dixter House (Sussex) and growing fresh produce for seasonal recipes. Get some tips you can use in your own garden from one of the world's best gardeners.
Great Dixter was the family home of gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd – it was the focus of his energy and enthusiasm and fueled over 40 years of books and articles. Visiting it has become a pilgrimage for horticulturists.
This exhibition at Highwic gets to the heart and sole of shoes and the shoe business in Newmarket. It features footwear and memorabilia from Ziera, Anselmi, Scarpa and others.
The exhibition is part of Auckland Heritage Week.
