On the three Fridays before Christmas you can enjoy festive food in the Garden Terrace Cafe and find everything you need to make your home and garden really Christmassy.
Festive Friday's on6th, 13th and 20th December (5 - 7pm) are a chance to browse Batsford Christmas trees and our beautiful home made wreaths, greenery and mistletoe. You'll also find a whole host of gift ideas in the Arboretum Gift Shop and the Applestore at Batsford – home of shabby chic furniture and unusual vintage ephemera where there'll be pizza oven demonstrations each evening and on Friday 29th November a jewellery-making demonstration too.
Find the illuminated Christmas characters hidden in the arboretum mini trail and visit Santa in his grotto!
There'll also be festive music from local choirs - we're delighted to be welcoming
An event for all the family bringing a traditional touch to Christmas.
