THE countdown to Christmas is on at Barton Grange Garden Centre with the opening of its magical late night shopping events.

Featuring a stunning Light Trail, VR Sleigh Ride, festive menus and Christmas music, the special evenings will take place from 4pm to 8pm every Tuesday to Saturday until December 16th.

It’s a great opportunity to enjoy Christmas shopping, food and drink and free parking.

Display Manager David Ropner-Fawcett says: “We always pull out all the stops to make Christmas shopping a joyful experience and our late nights are the perfect way to get into the festive spirit.

“The atmosphere is warm, relaxing and fun. No stress is involved! Make a night of it and enjoy a special treat in one of our two restaurants. It is the season to be jolly after all!”

Visitors will be captivated by a sparkling Light Trail as the outdoor plant area comes alive with dazzling lights, spectacular displays of colour and breath-taking projections.

There’s a thrilling VR Sleigh Ride for the whole family to climb aboard and take a journey to Lapland and beyond.

Barton Grange is famous for its award-winning Christmas displays. This year’s themes include the houseplant-inspired Scrumptious Green, a gorgeous pastel-infused Floral Sorbet and the vibrant red Starburst.

There’s also a chance to enjoy festive menus at Riverside Café and Willows Restaurant from 4pm to 7pm. Barton Grange’s famous hot pot supper is back and new for 2023 is a giant pig in a blanket served in a soft white roll.

Also on the menu is a choice of homemade pies, roast turkey with all the trimmings and seasonal soup options. Desserts include warm mince pies, Christmas pudding and a lemon and raspberry posset.

Vegans and vegetarians are well catered for with mushroom and walnut pate, vegetarian hot pot and parsnip, mushroom, chickpea and cashew nut loaf.
