Celebrate Christmas with us.......

A fun stained glass lantern-making workshop followed by a magical journey through our gardens to admire our 25 fairy-tale advent windows. Ending with a hot chocolate in our illuminated Palm House.

Our adventure begins with workshop to create lights out of recycled materials to help guide us on our magical journey. We will then venture outside into the gardens of the Abbey (remember to wrap up warm) to see our 25 colourful fairy-tale advent windows lit up for everyone to enjoy. Each of our unique-shaped windows of the house will have been decorated to create a magical outdoor gallery. Our journey will end in our Palm House which will  also be illuminated in enchanting colours and stained glass designs for a nice warming cup of hot chocolate.
