Join Us at the Botanic Garden

We welcome guests of all ages to come along and get involved in the events at the Botanic Garden. Please do browse our What’s On pages to find out more about upcoming activities.

Many of these events are inspired by the natural setting of the garden but, with activities ranging from traditional crafts to storytelling, there really is something for everyone! As well as being a beautiful natural environment in which to wander, explore and learn more about our plants, the Botanic Garden hosts a wide variety of events throughout the year. Many of these activities are free, with only standard admission prices applying.
