About the Event
Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to become a witch or wizard? Then put on your cloak, grab a broomstick, wave your magic wand and transport yourself to Borde Hill Garden to find out.
Can you help our little Witch, Petronella, who made a mistake practicing her spells and turned her owl into stone! Follow the spellbinding trail to find the magic word that will bring her owl back to life.
