2018 is Youthscape's 25th year. To launch our celebrations, we're gathering at the home of our patron, Justin Welby, for a garden party. 

Join us for an afternoon of strawberries and cream, croquet and a chance to enjoy the beautiful gardens, crypt and library at Lambeth Palace. The gardens will be open from 12-3pm, with refreshments available and plenty of space to sit and enjoy the sunshine. Entry is £5 for adults, children and dogs go free. 

The Croquet Tournament
We're also inviting youth work organisations from across the UK to enter what we believe might be the first ever Youth Work Croquet Tournament. Clearly this is a very serious new entry into the sporting calendar and we expect the trophy to be hotly contested. Teams consist of two people but organisations are welcome to enter as many teams as they wish. To enter your team, email us today to register, download the official Youthscape croquet rules from this page and get practicing. 

Lambeth Palace
The gardens at Lambeth Palace are open just 6 days a year so this is a rare opportunity to come and see them. The gardener will be available for tours and questions, and a selection of plants are available to buy should you wish to recreate the garden at your own home.
