The Famous Five Inspired Summer Adventures at RHS Garden Wisley

The Guide 2 Surrey 05/07/2017 Staff Writer

The summer holidays gets the Enid Blyton treatment with RHS WIsley's adventure trail inspired by a very Famous Five...

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Enid Blyton’s first book from The Famous Five series, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Wisley has developed the ‘The Famous Five on a Garden Adventure’ trail for young explorers this summer, running from 22nd July - 3rd September.

The RHS is inviting children to share Enid Blyton’s passion for the great outdoors by following its self-guided trail around the garden at Wisley. Children taking part will be tasked with helping The Famous Five to find Uncle Quentin, who has gone missing on a horticultural research mission, with clues to discover and puzzles to solve along the way. To take part, simply pick up a free paper trail at the garden entrance.

The 11th August marks another special anniversary for Enid Blyton, as it would be the author’s 120th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, RHS Garden Wisley is hosting a mass picnic party in the beautiful surroundings of the garden. No need to book, just come along with a picnic on the day to join the fun.

Additional fun activities will be running each day at the garden during the summer holidays, such as hands-on ‘sow & grow’ gardening workshops, craft sessions to ‘design your own treasure’, puppet and creepy crawly shows, storytelling, and birds of prey displays.

“The Famous Five stories by Enid Blyton have been inspiring generations of children to be adventurous and explore the great outdoors," says 
Stephanie Fudge, Head of RHS Garden Wisley, "and was therefore the perfect theme for this year’s summer holiday activities at RHS Garden Wisley. As well as the adventure trail and outdoor picnic party, children will be able to get involved with a wide variety of fun activities every day.”
