The Christmas Garden is back to light up the Sandown Battery with festive spirit and fun for all the family this Sunday (15th December 2019)
The evening will celebrate one of Sandown Bay’s most interesting monuments and cliff-top gardens, bringing the area to life.
This year, The Garden will again host illuminations, seasonal craft and decoration workshops, tree dressing, as well as music performances from Vectis Brass and Ventnor Exchange Community Choir.
Meanwhile, there will also be seasonal storytelling, the return of the Shadow Wall and don’t forget to toast a marshmallow on the fire or dance in the snow.
The event is from 4pm until 7pm- parking is restricted so we’re advised to walk or take the bus.
Mhairi Macaulay, from Ventnor Exchange, said,
“We are very pleased to bring back this event after the weather washed us out last year. It feels great to have everyone in the local community gathering together just for the fun of it and it helps us not to forget these public spaces that need people to interact within them and bring them to life again.”
