AN ENCHANTING CHRISTMAS AT WESTONBIRT ARBORETUM
Enchanted Christmas event, 30 November – 23 December 2012
A spectacular illuminated trail, crafts, gifts and festive family fun will greet visitors to the Enchanted Christmas at Westonbirt, The National Arboretum this year.
The famous evening event will return to the Forestry Commission’s National Arboretum, near Tetbury in Gloucestershire, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 30 November to 23 December.
The one mile trail highlights the striking structures of Westonbirt’s trees as they are illuminated against the winter’s night sky. A new route is created each year to take in different specimens, paths and vistas in the tree collection.
The Learning Centre will also be transformed with snow and Christmas decorations to become a wintry delight! Children can make festive crafts with Westonbirt’s learning team every evening.
The Enchanted Christmas takes place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 30 November to 23 December, 5 to 8.30pm, with the last entry to the trail at 7.15pm.
The illuminated trail is accessible by wheelchairs and mobility scooters, which can be booked for free in advance by calling 01666 881218.
Admission is adults £9, concessions £8 and children £5. Discounted entry is available for pre-booked groups over 10 people and Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum members receive half price entry on Fridays.
Advance tickets can be booked online from 1 October at www.forestry.gov.uk/westonbirt-christmas.
