Night at the Gardens
What really happens in the Public Gardens after dark? Night at the Gardens is a lively adventure involving the statues of the Halifax Public Gardens and surrounding parks. As darkness descends and the Gardens’ gates clang shut, the statues “come alive”, climb down from their pedestals, stretch their limbs and once joined by Toby, the fun begins. One night the Gardens’ statues are plunged into chaos when the Jubilee Fountain’s nymphs ride off on the backs of the Juan Swans to head for the Atlantic Ocean! What is to be done? How do Victoria Park’s Robbie Burns and Sir Walter Scott help their neighbours? Read on … and track their lively adventures on the maps inside.
