Join us for a guided walk through the Oudolf Field at Hauser & Wirth Somerset with Head Gardener, Mark Dumbleton. Mark will talk about some of the 30,000 herbaceous perennials in the 1.5 acre meadow and offer a unique insight into Piet Oudolf’s design process. The talk will begin in the Cloister Courtyard and continue through the garden, to the Radić Pavilion for a Q&A over garden cocktails, followed by dinner on the Roth Bar & Grill terrace.

Open Source Salon is an intimate and unique evening of discussion and dining for like-minded creatives and enthusiasts. Every salon invites special guest speakers to share their knowledge and experience on one of the key themes at the heart of Hauser & Wirth Somerset – art, architecture, landscape and food.

Hear stimulating talks, exchange new ideas and enjoy locally sourced fare. Previous participants include Mary McCartney, Michael Eavis and Hauser & Wirth founders, Manuela and Iwan Wirth. 

Open Source Salon is a collaboration between Hauser & Wirth Somerset and Roth Bar & Grill where, every Thursday night, Roth Bar & Grill will cook over fire as part of From the Fire Feasts running from May to September.
