Our famous flower garland
From 7 - 21 November watch the gardeners make the annual 60 foot flower garland in the hall and help if you wish. Then from 22 November - 31 December (except 25 and 26 December) warm up by the fire and admire the garland's beauty.
Winter entry is £5 from 2 November - 31 December (members and under 18s free).
We've lined up 24 musical groups to perform under the garland. The first choir sings on 22 November. The logs will be glowing in the fireplace. What better way to stoke your holiday spirit?
