There will also be the chance to finish off the evening walk with refreshments and dog ice cream.

Lorraine Lecourtois, head of public programmes at Wakehurst, said: “We're delighted to be launching this new wellbeing series here in the gardens at Wakehurst. The last two years have shown us the benefits of spending more time outdoors, and we hope that by extending our opening hours and offering new ways to engage with and appreciate nature, we will welcome more visitors to discover our wild and biodiverse landscape."

These wellbeing events offer fun ways to keep active with friends and family, while exploring Wakehurst.
