Hillier introduces children's holiday entertainment

Hillier Garden Centre in Horsham will be entertaining children during the school holidays with its first summer entertainment programme.

Every Wednesday and Thursday from 31 July-29 August, Hillier will be hosting activities and free entertainment for families.

Hillier Horsham garden centre manager Terry Clarke said: "As a child-friendly garden centre, we think it’s important to give both adults and children a positive experience so they’ll keep coming back.

"Following the success of our kids’ summer entertainment programme in our flagship centre, Eastbourne, we decided to put on a full range of activities throughout the summer break. We’ve got pottery painting, face painting and local childrens’ entertainers who specialise in story-telling, stilt walking, balloon modelling and a whole host of other magical illusions, so we hope families will leave with a smile on their faces."
