President Obama flipped burgers there. David Cameron and Nick Clegg staged their love-in there. And, erm, a tiddly Freddie Flintoff allegedly peed there while celebrating winning the Ashes. Yup, 10 Downing Street’s garden has been witness to a lot of history, and on June 8 you can see it for yourself as part of the annual Open Garden Squares Weekend. Well, if you’re one of 40 winners of a ticket ballot, that is. Note that references to ‘green shoots’ refer to the borders, not the economy. Rebecca Taylor
The ballot closes on May 21 www.ogswballot.eventbrite.com.
