Illuminate the Gardens in 2017

The very first Illuminate the Gardens took place in November 2017, with a great range of local street food, local beers, kids activities, acoustic music performances and stunning fireworks. There were 10,000 tickets available across the two nights of this brand new event, but we had completely sold out two weeks in advance! Make sure you get your tickets early this year – sign up to our mailing list for advance booking of our early bird tickets.

Comments from 2017 attendees:

“The fireworks were by far the best we have ever seen, outstanding and quite breath taking.”

“Lovely setting, good displays, a different approach to event food with many new types of nutritional and tasty fast foods. The beers got my attention with local brewers Bradfield, Kelham and Stancill all fantastically priced.”

“The fire dancers were brilliant, massive choice of food, lovely pretty lights all along the walkways,the fireworks were out of this world, they alone were well worth the visit. Only downfall is we have to wait another year to see what you organise next year!”

“Beautiful atmosphere. It was magical to see the Botanical Gardens in such a new light (pun intended). The food was gorgeous and all the vendors were lovely.”

“In the words of my 7 year old, Awesome! A really great night.”

“We had a lovely evening and the children enjoyed it. Lots for them to do. The fireworks were the best I’ve ever seen.”

Spectacular lighting - fireworks - street food - licensed bar - and more!
