Cockington Greens Night Openings

09 Oct 2019

We’re 40 and to help celebrate our birthday and support a great local charity, special night openings of Cockington Green Gardens will be held between 7.00pm and 9.00pm on Friday 29th November and Saturday, 30th November. Proceeds of the night will support Marymead with all children accompanied by an adult for the night openings admitted free. Cockington Green Gardens is a magical treat that will be totally transformed at night under lights. This not to be missed opportunity is especially designed for families seeking something a little different and fun to do together at this special time of year. The night will include gold coin donation train rides, a Santa’s Hat competition and the jolly man himself will no doubt make an appearance to entertain the little ones. Food and beverages will be available from the café and then there’s the lovely grounds where families can bring picnics and do their own thing on a warm, balmy summer evening. All this whilst waiting for the lights turn the display into something quite special and spectacular straight from a fairy-tale setting. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see Cockington Green Gardens under lights whilst also helping others at the same time.
