Sun 31st July 10am – 4pm (last tickets 3pm)
Tickets £5 each (Under 12’s free)
The Wishing Fairy Queen has moved to the village and brought her fairies with her, so this year, for the first time we have an enchanted garden taking part in the garden trail!
Children and adults alike will find this enchanting garden magical. If you visit the garden trail this year, you never know – you may be able to have your picture taken with a fairy!
There will be games and the children will be able to make a wish on the wishing tree.
The Wishing Fairy will be crowning someone as a VIF (very important fairy). For a chance to win this prestigious title, submit your best drawing as yourself as a fairy. Be as creative as you like, think about what your fairy name would be, what magical power you would have, will you have wings and what would they look like?
Bring your entry to the Enchanted Garden on Sat 30th or Sun 31st July. Please write your guardians contact details on the back of your entry, so we can get in touch if you win!
The Wishing Fairy has selected the winner, find out who won and look at all of the amazing drawings here.
