Salisbury Trust for the Homeless (STFH) is holding a summer garden party to raise much needed funds for the charity.

It takes place on Friday, July 29 from 6pm to 8pm. The party is to be held at The Salisbury Museum.

Those attending the garden party will get free entry to the museum’s current exhibition Hardy’s Wessex: The Landscapes that Inspired a Writer, which explores Thomas Hardy’s relationship with Wessex, using literary sources, fashion, textiles, and social history collections.

They will also be contributing funds to STFH, which, more than ever, is dependent on the generosity of the public.

There will also be traditional dancing by Sarum Morris and classical music from Musica Rustica for visitors to enjoy in the relaxed setting of the Close.

The £15 ticket includes a drink and canapés. Tickets can be obtained from Phyllis Babb, 109B Exeter Street, Salisbury SP1 2SF. Telephone 01722 504017 or email
