Summer holiday trail - The Garden of Lost Things
Saturday 21st July - Sunday 2nd September, 10.30am-4.30pm
A brand new trail for the summer holidays featuring specially-created characters by author and illustrator Hannah Shaw. Young adventurers will set out on a journey to help our very own Snowdrop Bunny find all the items her friends have lost around the Garden.  Along the way you will all learn some fascinating facts about the animals that call the Rococo Garden their home - and there's some puzzling to be done and a prize to be won.  And best of all, the trail is free of charge - normal admission charges apply.

The Three Musketeers - IK Productions
Sunday 26th & Monday 27th August, 3.30pm
Come on a whistle-stop tour of France with three daring heros who busy themselves saving the day as they travel the length and breadth of the country.  IKP return with a hilarious comedy adaptation of the classic novel.  Expect plenty of swashbuckling, sword-fights and subterfuge in this fast-paced and quick-witted performance. Suitable for all ages, under 3's are free. Tickets include access to the Garden and are on sale from www.everymantheatre.org.uk.
