Our annual Spring Celebration event welcomes the arrival of a season of abundance, growth and new beginnings.

Our annual Spring Celebration event welcomes the arrival of a season of abundance, growth and new beginnings. With an array of artistic workshops, wildlife activities, captivating demonstrations and lively music there will be something for everyone to enjoy during this family friendly event.


Live jazz will be playing on Flora's Green throughout the day to accompany delicious home-made cream teas, face painting and paper bunting making. Willow Weaving can also be experienced on Flora's Green, try your hand at weaving a dragonfly or fish during these fun and creative workshops, accessible to all ages, and take home your endeavours as a personalised memento of the day.


In the Wider Estate fascinating demonstrations of woodturning, hazel weaving, flock care and charcoal burning will be taking place, whilst Horsemoor Hide will be the perfect spot to ask your wildlife questions.
Throw yourself into our traditional games of ring and hoop or join the Smite tournament to discover what makes this fast paced Cornish skittles game so much fun for all the family.


As the gardens and estate fill with the joys of spring this celebratory event is surrounded perfectly by the beauty of nature; the apple arches burst with blossoms, bluebells create a purple sea on the woodland floor, spring lambs frolic amongst daffodils in the fields and giant rhubarb emerges in the Jungle.


All Spring Celebration activities are included in the normal garden admission charge except face painting and willow weaving.
