Cutting the grass in my wild garden

South Yorkkshire, United Kingdom Gb

When should I cut the grass down. It is just part of an ordinary lawn that I have let grow. I think I should trim it at some point, but don't know when. I would appreciate some help please.
I live in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Our entire garden is surrounded by a beech hedge



I'd give it a cut now before winter sets in and then let grow again in the spring

Do you plant any wild flowers in it? That would be lovely and there are now packets of wildflower seeds for this. If you did then I understand you have to wait to cut it until all the seeds have dropped.
