Tis the season to… enjoy the great outdoors and get into the festive spirit at Rosemoor!

This December you are spoilt for choice as the gardens offer a host of memorable experiences to suit all tastes. Explore a night-time winter wonderland, discover the fabulous sculpture trail, take in a creative workshop, catch the Panto or traditional Carol Concert or just book in to savour some delicious food with friends and family.

Tickets for the popular illuminated trail ‘Glow’, running on selected evenings until 30 December, are selling fast. Make sure you book your slot soon to guarantee entry at the time of your choice!

Rosemoor’s annual Winter Sculpture Exhibition featuring 120 artworks by local and national artists is a joy to explore during the day. Ranging in scale from tiny cast mice to a life-size horse made from recycled metal tools, all of the pieces are unique and are available to purchase. Make sure you collect a catalogue at the entrance so you can be sure to see them all.

If you are not quite feeling festive yet, a creative Christmas workshop is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Add a personal touch to your decorations this year by creating a traditional Christmas wreath, a vine garland or a wall hanging Christmas tree under the expert tuition of Sarah Pepper.

Or, join Wonder Pantomime’s Jack on 10 December as he climbs the beanstalk to an enchanted land to rescue his friends and family from the ‘Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum’ of one very hungry giant. If your tastes are more traditional, go back in time and enjoy a Victorian Carol Concert by the Exmoor Carollers whilst you enjoy a glass of mulled wine on 16 December. Access to the gardens is included in tickets for both the Pantomime and the Carol Concert so you can really make a day of it.

Younger families will be pleased to know the popular Children’s Christmas Party returns on 21 and 22 December for an afternoon of fun, dancing, singing, party games and face painting - as well as entry to Glow afterwards!

For those just seeking quality time with loved ones over a delicious meal, the Garden Restaurant’s Christmas lunch and Festive Afternoon Tea menus spotlight the very best of seasonal produce and flavours.

You might just want to choose your tree from the wide selection available on site - all with great needle retention and festive fragrance. The Gift Shop is also packed with quality homeware and tasteful gifts as well as a great selection of decorations should you need a little inspiration.
