What’s On 2017

2017 Event Timetable

It’s not all about the fireworks! We have plenty to keep you entertained across the evening and to ensure you get plenty of bang for your buck!!!

The best places to view the firework displays will be in front of the Pavilions and on the Broadwalk down to the fountain.

2017 Art Trail

We have placed some interesting and surprising sculptures around the Gardens for you to discover. Next to eight of these sculptures, there is a stamp point. Collect a stamp from each sculpture on your programme and then bring it back to the Information Desk – the first 250 children to show their completed stamp page can claim a free gift!

The Big WoW Sessions
