Quakers Quiet Garden

Thereafter on 1st Tuesday and 3rd Saturday May – October

A hidden gem in the centre of Cirencester, the Quaker Meeting House garden will, after a successful first year, again be open as part of the Quiet Garden Movement.

The Quiet Garden Movement was developed in the early 1990’s by Philip Roderick, retired Anglican priest, percussionist, educator and writer. He wrote “We live in a world where we are swamped by methods of communication …. Silence is the missing and vital ingredient. Even as little as five minutes can be restorative …” 

The Quiet Garden Movement nurtures access to outdoor space for people to experience silence and restfulness in a variety of settings, such as private homes, churches, retreat centres, schools and hospitals – and creates opportunities for private reflection. There are over 300 Quiet Gardens worldwide.

All are welcome to come to the Cirencester Quiet Garden – to either pop in briefly, or stay longer. There is flat access to the garden through the Friends Meeting House.  Light refreshments and toilet facilities will be available. No booking is necessary, and there is no charge but donations would be welcome to cover costs of refreshments. There is no parking on site, but town car parks are nearby.
