A festive Christmas at Hillier

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


On Wednesday 3rd November, Hillier Garden Centres officially unveiled its Christmas displays and collections in-store. As well as launch its Christmas digital magazine to the Hillier Gardening Club members, delving into the traditions of Christmas across the world. Once again Hillier will be supporting Mission Christmas with each store being a gift drop-off point. 


The week of the 22nd 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 a chance to sip a warming cup of mulled wine while wandering through the Christmas tree forest.


This year’s festive menu presents an abundance of festive flavours across all Mulberry & Thyme Restaurants and The Courtyard Restaurant at Syon Park for customers to enjoy throughout late November and December. Including the return of the customer favourite 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 6th to the 10th 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 and enjoy. 


Hillier Retail and Wholesale Director, Chris Francis, is positive about this year’s festive plans: “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.”
