This is a ticket ONLY event - all adults & children who would like to attend require a pre-booked ticket. This event will be held in the Oasis Restaurant, Waterside Garden Centre.

Booking Restrictions

To maximise the availability for children, we are restricting the number of Adult tickets per group booking to a maximum of 4.
Please do not book more than 4 Adult tickets - any bookings with more than 4 Adult tickets will be cancelled.. Full details available on our FAQ page.

In order to safely plan guest numbers we must count all those attending each session - this means if you are bringing a young baby who will not be taking part in the event - you still need to book them a ticket. In this circumstance please select the FREE 'Under 1' ticket - the child will not participate in the event but will be at the table. Please note - gifts, food & event activities will not be provided for these tickets. These tickets can ONLY be used when booked alongside another purchased child ticket.
