Experience the elemental power of fire

Garden of Fire Clumber Park

As dusk falls over Clumber Park, a unique and bewitching performance of dazzling fire sculptures, dancing flames, fire spiders and orchards of sparkling lanterns will combine to make a spectacular display that has to be seen to be believed! This heart-warming event will take place every Thursday – Sunday from 26 November – 13 December and it will be open from 17:00 – 20:00.

Visitors will make their way to the historic Walled Kitchen Garden where they will be given the opportunity to experience the elemental power of fire in this exciting new event. Clumber Park is set to host its most unique and breath-taking event to date as guests follow the trail of discovery through the gardens where they will see 8 foot flames leaping into the air, scented sculptures, larger than life flaming gardening tools, a fire globe, a stunning Christmas tree  ablaze with light and woodland paths aglow.

Jacqueline Mooney, Operations Manager at National Trust Clumber Park commented: “This is the most unique event Clumber Park has ever hosted.  It will require a high level of expertise, preparation and dedication.  The safety and protection of the historic gardens and of course, our visitors is paramount so that we can ensure that no permanent damage is caused to the landscape and it’s contents. Naturally, there is some element of risk involved in staging an event such as this but we are determined to provide a unique experience that will reflect the nature of Clumber Park and enthral our visitors and they will leave us filled with Christmas cheer and a rosy glow!”

The National Trust pop up gift shop will also be open throughout these evenings so that visitors to the Garden of Fire will have the opportunity to buy last minute Christmas gifts and cards. Warming hot drinks and other festive treats will be available to buy during the whole of evening. There is plenty of free parking too!

Tickets are £7.50 for National Trust members and £10 for non-members and are available online at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/clumber-park or via the box office on 0844 249 1895.
