Museums at Night: The Enchanted Gardens

For one charmed evening, discover a mystical twilight world in the hidden gardens at Blaise. Step through the portal and see nature transformed. Embark on a playful and magical journey and let your imagination run wild.

Use your special activity map to guide you as you make magical dens, silver roses, miniature gardens and paper creatures.

An innovative installation of light and sound created by UWE filmmaking students will illuminate the house. Explore the imagined forests of the future, where large wild animals are living once again.

The magic continues after dusk with a performance from Travelling Light Youth Theatre at 7.30pm.

Be tempted by sweet treats and warming drinks from our pop-up café, or bring your own picnic.

The spell will break at the stroke of 9pm.

Inspired by the Forest of Imagination events in Bath, The Enchanted Gardens is an exciting collaboration between various creative organisations and people, from community groups to sustainable businesses to local artists, including 5x5x5=creativity, Travelling Light Theatre Company and Touchwood. Part of Museums at Night 2016.

About Museums at Night

Twice a year, non-profit cultural publisher Culture24 invites all UK museums, galleries and heritage sites to throw open their doors after hours to showcase their treasures in unexpected ways.

Museums at Night is an opportunity for museums and galleries to come together around a single, simple campaign that is attractive to venues, audiences and the media. It’s a social experience, where visitors can get involved, delve deeper into fascinating subjects and perhaps enjoy a cocktail or two with friends.

In 2016, Museums at Night events will take place between Wednesday 11 – Saturday 14 May and
Thursday 27 – Saturday 29 October at hundreds of venues across the country.
