Twas the run-up to Christmas, and over at Bents,
Your local garden centre is packed with events...

We're well and truly in the run-up to Christmas now and here at your local garden centre on Warrington Road, the Bents team have been busier than Santa's elves putting together some amazing events.  And now we are open until 9pm every weekday night until the big day so you can enjoy our shopping experience long into the evening.

As usual we have our Winter Food Market with evening entertainment every Wednesday to Friday, as well as all of the treats you'll find in the Bents Food Hall all year round.

Best of all, it's under cover of our Open Skies Glass House, so you'll be safe in our store if it snows, hails or pours.

There's magic and music and mince pies till late,
With Inspo Evenings on Wednesdays till 8.

Bents Christmas Inspiration Evenings are a great way to enjoy all of the usual festivities we've got going on, while also getting some extra ideas for crafty Christmas gifts.

They run every Wednesday from November 13th to December 11th, leaving you enough time to get those last-minute hand-made Christmas gifts finished.

At Bents we're taking the stress out of Christmas shopping, while giving you some ideas for unique and original Christmas presents that eclipse anything you'll see on the high street.

Escape from the crowds at our Christmas Market,
And if you're arriving by car, you can park it.

We aim to offer a magical, hassle-free Christmas shopping experience. So whether you're ladies who lunch, you've got a few hours to yourself or you're on your way home from work or school, we've got you covered.

Our evening shopping environment offers festive food and drink, gifts galore and Christmas themed events, but with less of the crowds, making it a stress-free destination for your Christmas shopping.

There's plenty of room in the our car park, with disabled parking by the main entrance, so you can get straight in and join our Christmas Inspiration Evenings.

So, if you're in need of some fresh inspiration,
Come and join in with a Bents demonstration.

Our Christmas Inspiration Evenings run from 5pm to 8pm on Wednesdays until December 11th and give you a hands-on experience of some traditional Christmas crafts.

Some of our Christmas craft sessions include:

  • Bow making
  • Floristry arrangement
  • House plant arrangement
  • Napkin folding

We'll also be running gift wrapping sessions and sharing some of our top tips on how to make those presents look even better.

We've come to the end of our Christmassy ode,
But you'll find a warm welcome on Warrington Road.

You'll find Bents Garden & Home on Warrington Road in Glazebury, a short distance from Culcheth and Leigh, and easily reached from Warrington, Wigan, and via the A580 East Lancs Road from locations across Greater Manchester and the north-west.

We'd recommend booking a place if you want to join in our Christmas Inspiration Evenings as they're already proving very popular.

But there's plenty more to do in store - our doors open from 8:30am Mon-Sat and 10:30am on Sundays and we're open till 9pm on weekdays.

Find out exactly when we're open on our Store Information page or give us a call if you have any questions, and we look forward to showing you our warm winter welcome on Warrington Road one day during this festive season.
