Borde Hill is pleased to offer National Trust Members a 2 for 1 adult ticket offer between 23 September and 2 October. A perfect opportunity to enjoy the early autumn colour, as the air starts to cool and conkers and acorns scatter the ground.
It is also a chance to bring the family and enjoy the 2017 Sculpture Exhibition before it closes on 2 October, boasting a wide and varied collection of artworks nestled amongst the flowers, trees and shrubs. Each piece is available to buy as a lasting reminder of your visit to the Garden.
Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to become a witch or wizard? Then put on your cloak, grab a broomstick, wave your magic wand and transport yourself to Borde Hill Garden to find out.
From 21st – 31st October 2017, young visitors will receive a dastardly treat from the resident Borde Hill witch if they complete all the challenges in their spell book on the ghoulish garden trail. There will be spooktastic entertainment every day in the haunted marquee, such as Tomfoolery on 23rd, Sublime Science on 25th and Owls About Town on 27th October and much more.
On Sunday 29th October, come and join our Pumpkin Glow event, where we will attempt to create a record for the longest line of carved pumpkins. During the afternoon you can carve a pumpkin in the haunted marquee, or why not bring along your own creative masterpiece and add it to our ribbon of lit pumpkins threading throughout the garden. Our judges will select the best pumpkin designs and the winning little witch and wizard will each receive a £25 Amazon voucher. To be part of our amazing trail of carved pumpkins and to be in with a chance of winning a prize, please bring pumpkins by 4.00pm on 29th October. Judging will take place at 4.30pm.
After all the excitement tired souls can revive their spirits at the Little Witches House serving tasty snacks and warming drinks.
The activities are free, although a small charge will be made for pumpkin carving on 29th October (normal Garden admission charges apply). Donations are welcome.
