It’s ‘Festival of Light’ time at the Garden again when we celebrate the importance of light in the darkest months, first of all with free lantern-making workshops for adults and for children and then with December ‘Light Nights!’ when the Garden and Pavilion are magically illuminated by all the hand-crafted lanterns lit up together on cosy late night openings.

On Saturdays 21 & 28 November, 1- 5pm, children, young people and adults can join in making giant sculptural paper lanterns, inspired by the fruits, vegetables and seed-pods that we grow in the Garden. The sessions are free and supported by our team of Garden volunteers. No booking is necessary, just turn up and stay for as long as you like. All we ask is that you leave the lanterns to help light up the Garden on ‘Light Nights’ and in the winter months.

The lantern making sessions all take place inside the Pineapple House, with the wood-burning stove keeping everyone cosy. The Garden cafe serves hot chocolate and mulled wine, with Latto’s Pizzas from the wood-fired oven on Saturdays and Sundays. You can borrow blankets and hot water bottles if you want to sit outside – so no need to worry about the cold!
