With the arrival of our Christmas trees next week, it’s looking, feeling and smelling a lot like Christmas at our three centres. From Gluten Free Christmas at The Apple Tree Restaurant on Thursday 4 December and a New Year’s Eve party at The Engine Room, to festive treasure hunts and after school story time every Friday in December, we’re keeping gardeners of all ages entertained this December.

This year we’re collecting your letters to Father Christmas and the deadline is Saturday 6 December, so make sure your wish list gets to him in time. You can also tell him in person as Father Christmas will be at Poundbury Gardens every Saturday and Sunday in December, as well as Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 December. He will then be accepting visitors at Castle Gardens during our late night shopping week from Monday 15 December and will be there right up until Christmas Eve. Visit our events page or ask in store for more information and timings.
