Unfortunately, due to the adverse weather forecast & warnings issued today, in the interests of the safety of our colleagues, customers and suppliers we have taken the decision to cancel tonight’s Christmas Shopping evening, which was due to take place at our Visitor Centre 5-8:30pm. We apologise for the late cancellation and any inconvenience & disappointment that this may cause. However, don’t forget, we are hosting our 2nd Christmas Shopping night next week on Thursday 16th December & look forward to welcoming you.

Join us for our first annual Christmas Shopping Evenings on Tuesday 7th December between 5 & 8:30pm.

    I was wondering if we need to book for Calvert’s restaurant for the Christmas shopping evening? If so could I book for two people at 5:45?
