Dorking is set for a wintery Christmas delight this December as the Deepdene Trail’s historic gardens host their first ‘Winter Wonders Weekend’.
On the 9th and 10th December from 10am – 3pm visitors to The Trail are invited to wrap up warm and enjoy the winter wonders of Deepdene’s atmospheric gardens in the company of real reindeer, live festive music, enthralling children’s storytelling, Christmas crafts and of course Father Christmas himself!
Our magnificent family of reindeer and their beautifully decorated sleigh will make the perfect backdrop for family photographs in this idyllic setting. The Rough Mechanicals, who delighted with the ‘Shakespeare Live Weekend’ at Deepdene this summer, are back to entertain us with their own winter wonders, a selection of fabulous festive tales from the Victorian world of Dickens. Be enthralled by tales of festive ghosts, family gatherings, and yuletide parties by the quintessential Victorian Christmas author - Charles Dickens’.
For a small donation there will be the opportunity to create a stunning Christmas wreath using natural materials. All children’s craft for creating cards and decorations will be free of charge, as will soaking up the festive atmosphere.
The Trail is a 15 minute walk from Dorking Halls, directions are available online at www.deepdenetrail.co.uk
