** Our Christmas Cooking Classes 2017 have now finished. Thank you to everyone who joined, we hope you came away with plenty of culinary inspiration! For more Christmas ideas and events at Hillier, visit the Christmas section of our website or view our events pages. **
We are delighted to announce our new Christmas food and drink classes, which will be held at a select number of Hillier Garden Centres this November and December.
Join us for a fun, festive and interactive event that will help you host any Christmas party occasion with ease and style!
During the evening, we will help you create a wide variety of delicious, fuss-free, savoury and sweet canapés plus accompanying festive tipples. You can then enjoy the fruits of your labour as we throw a party for all our guests – relax, nibble and chat as we serve you the food and drinks you’ve helped produce.

Guest Feedback from our Summer Cooking Classes
“Just a note to thank you all for a very good evening last Thursday… The whole evening was brilliantly organised – a great idea.”
– Guest, Hillier Newbury
“I am emailing to say how brilliant we thought last night’s summer cooking class was … It was evident that an enormous amount of work had gone into preparing for our arrival – equipment, ingredients, recipes, tastefully laid up table. Nothing had been forgotten.”
– Guest, Hillier Chichester
“It was an absolutely first class evening. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
– Guest, Hillier Horsham
