We are thrilled to be bringing The Christmas Garden back to Sandown Battery Gardens! After the success of last year’s event attracting nearly 300 people through the gates we’re back better and bigger than before.

With traditional band Vectis Brass performing festive tunes, Company B singing their charming nostalgic songs and interactive theatrical experiences including immersive-storytelling! Everyone in the family loved our hands-on craft stalls and this year we will have even more available to make and do!

Not to mention the fire-pits for toasting your marshmallows and warming cold hands, a 20ft tree for all to gather round in the snow (yes snow!), along with the magically illuminated barracks, thanks to the talented team at Genelec.

This is a FREE community event for all, created in collaboration with and funded by The Common Space, Arc and Artecology (all part of the Bay CCT), to celebrate the festive community spirit within the Bay area and to re-imagine spaces within the public realm.
