A POPULAR garden festival is set to return this year.

The Bishop's Palace Garden Festival is set to take place between July 2 and 4, when the gardens are at their best.

They will be full of colour and scents as visitors walk round to explore.

There will also be festival speakers at the event.

These will include:

  • Roy Lancaster
