Penn Green Park in Springhead development, Ebbsfleet, to be transformed into a magical winter garden

A park will be given a magical makeover as it is transformed into a winter garden this weekend.

The event – in Penn Green Park on the Springhead development, Ebbsfleet – will host a series of installations and performances inspired by light including the Show Globe – a life-sized snow globe which will float across the park – stilt walkers and music from around the world.

Gravesend-based arts organisation Cohesion Plus will be partnering with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation to produce the community festival.

It has also been developed with arts company Same Sky.

Event producer Gurvinder Sandher, from Cohesion Plus, said: "The Magical Garden has been designed to be enjoyed in a safe way by families and I hope those living in the vicinity of Penn Green Park will come out and support the event.

"January can often be a bleak month. This is our way of introducing some colour and joy into proceedings and hope this is the start of a proactive and positive relationship with the communities of Ebbsfleet."

Springhead Magical Winter Garden is on Saturday, January 22 between 4pm and 8pm and is free to enter.
