Christmas at Petersham Nurseries

It’s that most spectacular time of year when we celebrate tradition but embrace what’s to come, when we spend time with those we’ve known for the longest and when we make new friends. The smell of pine, a crackling fire, the sound of frosted grass crunching underfoot and a sip of encouragingly fortifying red wine… indulgence and beauty abound.

Christmas at Petersham Nurseries has always been a staple in the London calendar. Many of our classic events will be returning but we’re also pleased to announce some new exciting happenings to book, pencil in, and look forward to.

To learn more about what we have in store and how to get involved, please read on.
