Father’s Day

Join us for a day of outdoor family fun celebrating the father figures in your life.

Enjoy the finest food and drink which will be served from a variety of locations throughout the gardens. From Sunday roasts in Heligan Kitchen to paella on East Lawn with a little bit of everything in between including pasties and ice-creams.

We’ll be joined by top Cornish musician, Charlie Wingfield, who will be on hand to provide dad with the perfect excuse to show off his very best dad dancing.

If dad doesn’t dance, maybe he’d like to try his hand at some good old-fashioned Welly-Wanging whilst the youngsters let off steam in our adventure play area on East Lawn.

After all that exercise, dad will certainly deserve a beer and a feast fit for a king.

Head down to East Lawn where you’ll be able to enjoy a Big Pan Party Feast

Big Pan Party love food, love sourcing it, love cooking it and we love eating it. We think that you’ll love their food too.
