Our Night Garden Robin is Going on Tour

For the first time ever, we’ll be taking one of our iconic lanterns on the road, visiting towns and cities in Devon and Cornwall.

Our beautiful robin will be coming down from his perch at the entrance to the gardens to visit various Christmas events over the next few weeks, bringing the joy and magic of the Heligan Night Garden to a wider audience.

We’ll be at the following Christmas shopping events:

Thursday 1 December: Plymouth City Centre Late Night Shopping, 4pm – 9pm
Friday 2 December: Padstow Christmas Festival and Lantern Parade, 5pm – 8.30pm
Wednesday 7 December: Truro City Centre Late Night Shopping, 4pm – 9pm
Thursday 8 December: Plymouth City Centre Late Night Shopping, 4pm – 9pm

Come and visit our stand – we’ll have free Christmas craft activities for you to take and make (while stocks last) and you can enter a competition to win tickets for you and your family to visit Heligan Night Garden.

We’ll also have exclusive ticket offers for people visiting our stand – and the opportunity to take a picture with our festive robin!

Look out for us if you’re visiting any of these towns and come and say hello. It’s a great chance to find out more about our enchanting winter lantern experience.
