On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December, Dover Town Council invites you to see the Roman Lawn near Market Square transformed and illuminated by outdoor arts experts Walk the Plank as they bring their Fire Garden to the town for a unique fiery event.
The Fire Garden is an outdoor family experience which has been adapted for social distancing and provides the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and experience something unique, encouraging warmth and feelings of togetherness.
Visitors will wander through a series of immersive fiery installations and see sculptural scenes of flames and foliage cast a golden glow around the Roman Lawn.
Following flame-lit pathways, visitors can expect to see intricately carved flower boxes and feel the heat from flame-filled floral chimneys. From mechanical plants that burst into flame before your eyes to holly bushes that ignite in a flash, the Fire Garden will offer an unforgettable family friendly experience.
Currently we are only issuing tickets to residents in CT16 & CT17, a waiting list to be notified when tickets are available for non CT16 & CT17 residents is available here: Waiting list
