Late night Christmas evenings at Beth Chatto Gardens
For the first time, we will be extending our opening hours for a month of Wednesday evenings in the run up to Christmas.
Each Wednesday, from the 19th November to the 17th December, there will be extended opening hours at Beth Chatto Gardens, with the Tea Rooms and Shop open from 9am until 8pm as part of the Christmas season.
Creating a warm and festive ambience, there will be Christmas lights in the tea room and on carefully selected trees and shrubs in the Gravel Garden. Children from the Elmstead Primary school will be singing carols on one evening and there will be different locally-produced foods and drink to sample.
Once again, on sale will be a selection of beautiful wreaths and door hangers, all handmade on site from foliage grown in the Gardens. Prices range from £30 to £70 according to size.
In the shop our full range of garden-themed products includes handmade decorations, cards, planted terracotta pots, locally produced pottery, useful gardening tools, books and lots of other unusual garden-related items to give as gifts.
There will also be ‘made to order’ Christmas hampers to the value of around £35. The hampers are beautifully presented in a traditional ‘shopping style’ wicker basket, and include mince pies, Dundee cake, a Christmas pudding, cranberry and apple chutney, apricot, apple and cardamom chutney (all made on the premises), the hamper will also include a bottle of wine, a non-alcoholic Great Uncle Cornelius’s famous Spiced Ginger Drink, fudge, sugared almonds and ginger and vanilla biscuits.
This is the first time we are creating special festive late nights at Beth Chatto Gardens to help people get ready for Christmas. We would love everyone to come and try some wonderful local foods and drink, hear the children sing carols, and enjoy a lovely festive atmosphere in the Gardens and tea room.
