Teddy Bear Picnic

Saturday 3 October 2020

9am to 4pm

Free entry

To welcome back our hugely popular teddy bear trail in the Botanic Gardens (and the arrival of Spring!), we are having a wonderful Teddy Bear’s Picnic.
Bring your own picnic – morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea. We will have a coffee cart, a craft and honey stall to celebrate.

“Big Teddy” will be visiting us and distributing small goodie gifts to the children.

There will also be a giant teddy raffle. And of course, the teddy bear trail will be reopened, to allow our keen teddy bear spotters to wander the Gardens and discover our 16 hidden teddies.

This event has been rescheduled from 26 September due to forecast cold weather with extreme winds.

Teddy Bear Colouring-in Competition

There will be a great colouring activity for under 6’s and under 12’s.

To enter just download the teddy drawing below, get the little ones to colour it in and then bring it along for display on the day for a chance to win.

Draws will be run at 11am and 1pm for each age group category

So, pack your picnic blanket, include something sweet to eat,bring your very own teddy and come and share a wonderful Spring picnic in the Gardens!
