Volunteering and environmental charity Bankside Open Spaces Trust invites you to historic Red Cross Garden for a fabulous free festive event featuring for wreathmaking, mulled wine and merriment.

Our Winter Warmer is all about getting together and bringing a little light and warmth to the winter chill. Held around the birthday of Octavia Hill, social reformer, who founded the garden in 1886, it is both a celebration of the garden and of all those who visit and enjoy the space throughout the year. The garden is lit and a live jazz band provides the entertainment while you craft a Christmas wreath to adorn your door.

The event is free entry with donations collected for wreathmaking and mulled wine and mince pies available for a small charge. Free kids' hot chocolate is also available!
