Father Christmas Experience
Lost Gardens Of Heligan
This Christmas, we’re really excited to be welcoming back Father Christmas and his Elves to The Lost Gardens of Heligan; he did so enjoy meeting you all last year.
Write a letter to Father Christmas and explore the Gardens with our magical Christmas Trail. You and your family will meet Father Christmas and his Elves in a cosy setting nestled in the garden. Each child will receive a small traditional gift.
Bookings include the chance to write a letter to Father Christmas, explore our Christmas Trail, meet Father Christmas and his Elves and enjoy our Christmas craft workshops
Heligan by Night : 'The Art of Illumination'
This December and January, step in to ‘Heligan by Night’ and experience the art of illumination as internationally renowned light artist Ulf Pedersen returns for the third year to reveal the night time magic of Heligan’s historic plantings.
Journey through an after dark Lost Gardens and delight in the incredible textures, colours and atmosphere created by Pedersen’s thought-provoking sound and light installations to create a dazzling nocturnal immersive experience.
New for 2019, Ulf has worked closely with the Heligan Team to create a unique selection of thought provoking projections that will come to life across the hedges and walls of Heligan’s historic landscape. Capturing the joyous occasion of the pineapple harvest and the activity of Heligan’s native black bees amongst other garden moments, the projections are set to bring the working garden to life at night.
Spaces are limited on the ‘Heligan by Night’ evenings, therefore booking is essential.
