Seedy Sunday is back for 2022
After a two year hiatus Seedy Sunday is back with a fantastic line-up of speakers, local businesses and creative activities with a horticultural theme.
Seedy Sunday is a family event run byRyde Arts that celebrates all aspects of growing. The event includes an annual seed swap and an array of guest speakers sharing their expertise and advice. The event forms part of Ryde Arts’ commitment to greening our town and to the Island’s Biosphere status.
This year they have also commissioned Lauren Fry @studio_wren to create a Seedy Sunday window installation so keep your eyes peeled for that in the run up to the weekend.
Seedy Sunday is brought to you with support from Ryde Town Council and Arts Council England. Please note that for 2022, Seedy Sunday is at the following new location in the centre of Ryde: Department, (formerly Packs), Cross Street, Ryde, PO33 2AA.
