The festive season is almost upon us, and we couldn't be more excited. Thoughts of mulled wine, mince pies and evenings by the fire while Christmas songs play softly in the background are filling our minds; so too are thoughts of our busy Christmas season here at Beetham Nurseries! Events, tastings, workshops, gifts, decorations and much more await: Santa will be paying us a visit on a few days throughout December, and we invite you to join us for festive wreath making, floral displays, and more.
Our Beetham Christmas elves have also been busy spreading festive cheer throughout the Garden Centre, and our seasonal displays are now ready to shop. From traditional decorations to gifts and festive food, there's plenty to discover. Here's just a small taste of what we've got going on this Christmas at Beetham Nurseries - keep an eye on our social media pages for festive updates!
Christmas classics are always in style: festive baubles in reds, golds and silvers; pillar candles; snow dusted Christmas trees; winter woodland creatures; and snow globes can all be found on display in our traditional Enchanted Forest.
Sophisticated gold and white tones blend to create the classic Christmas setting with a modern touch. Create a festive oasis filled with serenity with neutral toned decorations, snow globes...and that ever important touch of sparkle.
Create a colourful Christmas display with vintage style decorations this season. Brightly coloured baubles, glittering christmas trees, and mismatched colours and patterns make for a fun festive feel.
There's nothing like the smell of a natural Christmas tree, nor the sight of one adorned with baubles and tinsel throughout December. Keep an eye out for our fresh cut, British grown Christmas trees, which will be here around the end of November - ready to be taken home and decorated however you please!
'Tis the season to be jolly and to get into the Christmas spirit, we've got a range of fabulous festive events taking place here at Beetham Nurseries. Here's a round-up of what we've got going on – please refer to our Events Page for more information and to stay up to date with everything happening at Beetham Nurseries throughout the year.
NAFAS Festive Floral Demonstrations (November 29th & December 6th)
This Christmas season, we once again invite two popular NAFAS (National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies) demonstrators to share their skills and knowledge when it comes to creating stunning festival floral arrangements. On the evening of November 29th, we will be joined by the ever entertaining Don Billington (last few tickets!); while on December 6th, the fantastic John Dalton will be here. We look forward to two Christmas events which promise to be both interesting and informative! Warming festive refreshments will be provided, while the shop will be open to ticket holders to visit after the demonstrations take place with an exclusive 10% discount on the night.
Christmas Wreath Making Workshops With Green House Floristry (December 3rd, 5th & 8th)
Join us for a festive wreath making workshop this Christmas with Green House Floristry. Learn how to create your own bespoke Christmas wreath from scratch; add beautiful seasonal decorations; and take your stunning creation home with you to show off to the world.
Meet the Makers Festive Weekend (December 1st & 2nd)
This December, we're welcoming some of our wonderful producers to Beetham Nurseries to share their love and knowledge for their products at our FREE and festive Meet The Makers event. Enjoy tastings and demonstrations from a range of food and gift suppliers including Hawkshead Relish, Kin Toffee Vodka, Pure Lakes and more. Pop along, meet the people behind the products, and perhaps even pick up some Christmas gifts to hide under the tree come December 25th!
Santa's Magical Winter Wonderland (December 15th, 16th, 22nd & 23rd)
Father Christmas has once again managed to find time in his busy schedule to pop into Beetham Nurseries on three dates this December (15th, 16th, 22nd & 23rd), to spread the Christmas cheer and give out some very special gifts. Taking a break from making toys with the elves in the North Pole, he'll be welcoming visitors in his Winter Wonderland but, as ever, he's incredibly popular – so book early to avoid disappointment. There's more information for anyone wanting to visit Santa here.
Late Night Christmas Shopping (5th December, 5pm - 8.30pm)
This year, now that most of our alterations have been undertaken, our Late Night Christmas Shopping evening is back by popular demand! From 5.00pm until 8.30pm there will be 10% off fresh Christmas trees, complimentary mince pies and festive beverages, festive music, quadruple points for Garden Club members, a selection of scrumptious hampers to choose from and more! There'll also be a heart warming meal available at a special price in the Garden Cafe and live festive music from a local concert band.
We hope to see you this Christmas season at Beetham Nurseries and will be doing all we can to spread the festive cheer at our events and in store. It is, after all, the most wonderful time of the year!
