Hillier announces return of Christmas events

by | Nov 9, 2021 | Chains, Community, News | 0 comments

Hillier has announced its line-up of festive events and launches taking place across the 18 garden centres for Christmas 2021.

Last week, Hillier Garden Centres officially unveiled its Christmas displays and collections in-store, as well as launching its Christmas digital magazine to the Hillier Gardening Club members. Hillier will also be once again supporting Mission Christmas with each store being a gift drop-off point.

The week of 22 November is a key date in the Hillier festive calendar, commencing the delivery of thousands of top quality UK grown Christmas trees to centres, ready for sale. Early December the Festive Celebration Evenings will begin with light switch-ons, festive entertainment and mulled wine available while wandering through the Christmas tree forest.

A new festive menu will appear across all Mulberry & Thyme Restaurants and The Courtyard Restaurant at Syon Park throughout late November and December, including the return of the Festive Afternoon Tea for Two.

The award-winning Wreath workshops are back at Hillier this year with the addition of table decoration workshops. Running from the 6 – 10 December, these workshops are delivered by knowledgeable Hillier Garden Centre staff, who will demonstrate to participants how to make their own festive pieces to take home. 

Hillier retail and wholesale director, Chris Francis, says: “It’s another exciting year at Hillier, with a packed calendar of festive events and launches for customers across our garden centres. We’re looking forward to the return of our in-centre events and providing many happy customers with great experiences once again.”
