Signs of life in the National Botanic Garden of Wales – January Events

The arrival of New Year is too often accompanied by feelings of weariness from all our festive celebrations and probably disappointment that our New Year’s Resolutions have already fallen by the wayside!!  However, the bulbs are showing signs of life and it won’t be long until we see the first early narcissus and snowdrops – once more nature’s cycle begins, bringing with it a feeling of optimism and new beginnings.

One of the loveliest places to witness the awakening of spring is at the Botanic Garden of Wales where several events are taking place:

The very popular Derwen Antiques fair returns on Saturday and Sunday January 12-13

The Woodcraft Weekend on January 19-20

The Food Fair on January 26-27

Admission to all of these events is just £2.

There will be a special sale of snowdrops throughout the month (while stocks last) and the Gallery show ‘Landscape Now’ showcases the talents of three artists: Karen Pearce, Nigel Wood, and Gareth Hugh Davies.

Head of marketing at the Garden, David Hardy said: “It’s not exactly ‘free’ January but we think, at £2 a head, our January events still provide cracking good value. And, if you don’t like crowds, why not pop along – its FREE admission throughout January on non-event days – there are 25 to choose from!”
