Unlock your imagination this Easter, at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, as we celebrate the forthcoming family film The Secret Garden, as part of our exciting collaboration with STUDIOCANAL.

Inspired by the film’s key themes of friendship, wonder, magic and healing, we’ve created an enchanting Secret Garden themed family trail (4 April – 3 May), and a range of wellbeing and craft activities for all the family to enjoy (4 – 19 April).
