The display features 12 scenes, comprising colourful tableaux and backdrops, representing the lyrics of the popular Christmas carol.

Open every day until Thursday, December 21, you can view the display from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, and on Sunday, December 17, from 2pm to 4pm.

There’s free admission and refreshments are available.

“After a great number of people asked for our display of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ to be repeated this year, we plan to stage all the characters and birds mentioned in this popular song, together with their meanings, for the last time,” said an event spokesperson.

Some visitors to last year’s display were so impressed that they visited it again, “sometimes on three occasions”, and new visitors are very welcome.
