The Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust, invites you to their annual Henry Yates Thompson fundraising dinner on 13 October.

Roy Boardman, director of Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust, said: “The Henry Yates Thompson dinner is a celebration of the Palm House’s proud history; and it is also part of the Trust’s commitment to our community, who worked so hard to save this magnificent building from dereliction in the 1990’s.

People often forget that this magnificent venue is also a visitor attraction and we open for all to enjoy this historic Liverpool Botanical Collection free of charge most days of the week.”
