Christmas is in full swing at Hillier Garden Centre Newbury, home of our Newbury Show Site, and to help spread the Christmas cheer, they have organised wreath making and table decoration workshops that will allow you to get creative and in the mood for the holiday season.
Their award-winning wreath making workshops are back again this year from 2nd-7th December and they promise to get you feeling Christmassy. Hillier will provide you with all the materials you need to craft your wreath, including a frame, greenery and other festive additions. This year, their decoration selection even includes lights, so you’ll be able to see your masterpiece all lit up at night.
The table decoration workshops are a new edition for 2019 and will take place on the 4th and 5th of December. With the advice and help from the Hillier experts, you’ll be able to wow your Christmas guests with a hand-crafted centrepiece for your dinner table, made using a mixture of greenery and decorations including pine cones, holly and dried orange slices.
Both workshops last for approximately two hours and cost £40 per person, which is payable when you book either at the tills or over the phone. The price of the workshop also includes a hot drink and a mince pie so you can enjoy a festive treat during your session.
If the workshops aren’t enough to get you feeling festive, Hillier Garden Centre Newbury also have a mouthwatering festive menu running in the Mulberry & Thyme Restaurant until the 22nd December, which, of course, includes the option of turkey with all the trimmings and a Christmas pudding drizzled with a brandy sauce!
If you’re visiting Hillier Garden Centre Newbury over the festive period, be sure to stop by to see the display buildings at our show site. Paul and Pauline, our friendly advisors on the ground, will be more than happy to share their knowledge on our garden buildings and give advice based on your requirements.
