Remember, remember ...

We are delighted to welcome back our bonfire and fireworks this year in the garden. With a blazing bonfire and two glittering firework displays, including an early display for little ones set to music from popular children's films, there's exhilarating entertainment for visitors of all ages.

Wrap up warm and join us for a range of live entertainment and a selection of delicious food from hog roasts to jacket potatoes, from churros to sweet treats. Why not enjoy a glass of mulled wine or cider for the ultimate winter warmer?
