Join us for an evening of relaxed Christmas shopping
This year, we're staying open later on Saturday 1 December to give you the opportunity to come and browse our festive shop and pick out a few gifts for the special people on your shopping list this Christmas. We'll even gift wrap your items if you'd like us to.
This Christmas, why not get ahead of the game and come along to our Christmas shopping evening to pick up a few gifts and some tasty food and drink for your festive celebrations. Our reception shop will be staying open until 7pm on Saturday 1 December so you can browse at your leisure and pick up a few gifts.
What's on this Christmas
Enjoy the outdoors at Sheffield Park and Garden this Christmas, spotting the seasonal silhouettes around the garden interacting with the landscape. Or retreat indoors for Christmas crafts and two evenings of carols around the roaring fire.
Gifts for all the family
Whether you're looking for traditional games for all the family to enjoy, books and explorer sets for children, jewellery, leather gloves, scarfs, outdoor gear, gardening sets and plants, there's plenty to choose from. We also have a great selection of homeware items from candles and vases to handmade soaps and poole pottery for everyone.
Food and drink
Whether you're looking for a gift for someone or some tasty treats for your Christmas table, look no further than the National Trust range of produce. From Christmas puddings to mince pies, jams, chutneys, marzipan fruits, chocolates and biscuits, there's plenty to tempt you. We also stock a range of items from local suppliers, such as oat & butter sussex biscuits (delicious with stilton) from Horsham Gingerbread Bakehouse, Biddenden apple juice and the unusual flavour combinations of Goupie chocolates, made in Goudhurst.
Try some local wine from the Plumpton Estate wines
We're pleased to welcome Plumpton Estate to our evening who will be on hand to offer samples of their locally-produced wine. As the UK’s centre of excellence in wine training, education and research, Plumpton Estate wines are produced by their students on the wine production courses, working alongside a team of vineyard and winemaking experts. All the fruit that goes into the wine production is hand-harvested from their two estate-managed vineyards in Ditchling and Scaynes Hill.
The wines have won many awards over the years. Most recently, the sparkling Brut Rosé was awarded a Gold Medal in the prestigious Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2018. Make sure you stop by their stand to see their full selection and have a taste.
The perfect gift for everyone
Not sure what to give? How about the gift of membership to the National Trust? Not only would you be opening up a year of opportunities to explore over 500 places, indoors and out, you'll also be helping to protect these special places for generations to come. Plus if you purchase the membership at Sheffield Park and Garden, you will be giving a small percentage back to us to help us look after the garden and estate.
Our team will be on hand to answer any queries you may have and to advise you on the best membership for your chosen recipient.
Gift wrapping service
We'll also have members of our team on hand to personally gift wrap your purchases on the night. We have a roll of recyclable, craft gift wrap so let us do the hard work for you. If you'd like to leave a small donation in return, we would be very grateful.
So add the date to your diary and make plans to come along to our relaxed evening of Christmas shopping. We look forward to welcoming you.
