Kids Summer Fun: The Garden of Imagination Trail
Jul 18 – Sep 13 all-day
Kids Summer Fun: The Garden of Imagination Trail

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The Garden of Imagination – Family Trail*

Let your children’s imaginations run wild this summer holiday, as they explore the Garden on a mystical daily trail, discovering fantasy creatures including elves, unicorns and mermaids along the way. During the adventure seek out the hidden fairy doors in the Flying Fairy Forest or spot the Giants buttons hidden in the trees. If you’re feeling full of beans why not head down to the Enchanted Woodland on an extended trail to find the twelve fairies who live there, discovering their special fairy powers as you go.

We ask that Trails are pre-booked in advance so that the booklets are ready for collection on arrival. Please bring your own pencil where possible. Prizes will be available for collection from the gazebo at the end of the trail.

Please note that the Adventure Playground is currently closed due to government requirements for enhanced cleaning and hygiene routines. We will open it as soon as it is safe to do so.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Tickets

Children's Outdoor Theatre: Mr Stink - Postponed to 2021

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_column_text]David Walliams’ best-seller Mr Stink is coming to Borde Hill Garden with an open air theatre production staged by Heartbreak Productions.

Description:
You’re invited to celebrate Annabelle’s 10th birthday, hosted by everyone’s favourite MP candidate, Janet Crumb! (Almost) everyone is welcome… that is, everyone apart from Chloe’s particularly smelly new friend, Mr Stink.

One perfectly normal afternoon in an average English town two restless souls unite on a park bench – one of them the lonely 12 year old Chloe Crumb and the other an incredibly smelly homeless man. Oh, and let’s not forget his loyal dog, the Duchess. Chloe’s curiosity and kindness pave the way for this extraordinary and rewarding friendship that takes them to the heady heights of live television and Downing Street via a garden shed.

Pack a picnic, grab a chair and dress for the weather. Packed with fun, humour and a heart-warming message, this touching tale provides the perfect family entertainment.

Performed on the South Lawn against the backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House, Heartbreak Productions’ version of this popular children’s book is suitable for children aged 7+.

Refreshments will be available throughout the performance.
Running time: 2 hours[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”11567″ img_size=”large” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_btn title=”Book now” color=”primary” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fbuy.myonlinebooking.co.uk%2Fbordehill%2Fbuy.aspx%3Ftid%3D73||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]Booking essential
