Festive Family Fun Set For Bingley Garden Centre

The team at a garden centre in Bingley is making it fun for families this Christmas by introducing special festive events for the first time.

Bingley Garden Centre, formerly Stephen H Smith’s, was acquired by Yorkshire Garden Centres in July last year and the team is looking forward to celebrating Christmas with a host of family activities, including Breakfast with Santa, Christmas Crafternoons, a singing reindeer and a Christmas treasure hunt throughout the centre. Marc Salama, Centre Manager is looking forward to the festive season adding:

“We’re excited to bring our Christmas experiences to our new centre at Bingley. People travel for miles to experience Christmas at our sister centre at Tong and we want to replicate the magic of Tong, but with a Bingley stamp."

November 25 sees the launch of the festive experiences with a free family fun day with a princess singalong, elftastic fun with the cheeky elves, a Christmas treasure hunt, Rudy the singing reindeer, free Elfie Selfies in a giant bauble and the opening of Santa’s magical post box, with proceeds going to Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

They’ve also got donkey rides from November 26, Christmas Crafternoons for children every Monday from November 27, Meet and Greet Santa on December 2 and 3 and Breakfast with Santa on December 2, 3 and 23. For the grown-ups, seasonal dishes are being served in Hattie’s Kitchen from November 13 and festive afternoon teas from December 5.

“The centre is full of inspirational festive looks and there’s a great range of gift ideas for all the family. It feels very special, and we can’t wait to share the magic with our visitors young and old this festive season.”

Breakfast with Santa costs £19.95 for children and includes a set breakfast, juice, a cracker plus a toy and a visit from Santa. The Christmas Crafternoons are suitable for children aged three to 10 and cost £5.95. Each child receives a craft kit packed with two crafts to create, festive colouring sheets and a beaker to take home. Booking for both events is online.

Bingley Garden Centre is part of the Yorkshire Garden Centres family with Tong, Tingley and Otley Garden Centres.
