|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Saturday, repeating until Saturday, December 15,2018
A magical ‘make and explore’ lead up to Christmas for all the family in the Gardens. As night falls, wander into the Gardens with your own willow lantern; find the Big Star constellations hidden in the trees, run from Jupiter to Mars and make your own planetary shadow play..There’s hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows around the firepit too. Drop in any time on our Event Days to make your own ‘star lantern’ during the afternoon and, when the lights in the Gardens come on (around 3.30-4pm pm), take your lantern to explore the gently twinkling stars and planets scattered around the garden. Making a lantern is not compulsory – but its more fun! Event Days: Saturday 1st December, 12.30 -4.30 (ish) £2 per person (over 5 years). Free for Family Activity Pass Holders Saturday 8th December, 12.30 -4.30 (ish) £2 per person (over 5 years).
