Sgraffito is a technique of scratching or drawing into the top layer to uncover contrasting colours beneath. This is a lovely creative process!

Maximum of 2 children per adult. Maximum of 3 family groups. Book a ticket for each member of your family group (each participant needs their own ticket!).

Capacity is limited, please book your time and arrive promptly, late comers will not be admitted.

Meeting point: The meeting point will be included in the confirmation email.

Accessibility: There are some quite steep inclines in the park but routes are step free. We will be moving on hard paths through the park. Please contact the event organiser for further information and we can give detailed descriptions of the routes.

Covid guidance: Anyone experiencing symptoms possibly consistent with COVID-19 should stay away from the event and seek a COVID-19 PCR test. We also encourage attendees to be fully vaccinated.

We will be inviting attendees to check in using our QR code at the start of our live activities. If you are unable to use your phone, we will request you complete your details on a form. Please bring a face covering with you in case it is needed.

All the events are free, but because the on-the-ground activities will be run in small groups, booking is essential.

What to wear / bring: Please dress warmly. Bring water with you, and a warm drink / snack if needed.

Toilets: The public toilets are closed while the park restoration project takes place. There is a public portaloo available. There are accessible public toilets at the Holburne. And there is an accessible toilet in the workshop space.

Getting to the park:

Walking: you can walk to Sydney Gardens from the City Centre in 10 - 15 minutes along Great Pulteney Street.

Cycling: About 5 minutes from the Centre along Great Pulteney Street. There are currently no cycle racks in the park as we are still in the construction phase, however you can use the ones in the Holburne and walk through to the park.

Bus: Routes: 11, 94, D1. The 734 also runs near the park. Stops: Holburne Museum, Forester Road, Darlington Road.

Parking: Free parking is available around the edge of the park on Sydney Road (some bays are restricted to 2 hours, some are 4 hours between 8am to 6pm). They are often full, so leave plenty of time to find somewhere to park. There is also some free parking up the Warminster Road. The Holburne has a small car park beside it mainly for Museum visitors, and you need cash for a parking ticket.

Your ticket: Our events and activities are free to the public because this project is funded by the Lottery and B&NES Council. Please respect public funding by cancelling your ticket if you find you are no longer able to attend so others can take your place. Thank you!

If the event is sold out, please sign up to the waitlist in case of a ticket becoming available at a later date.
