Bents’ festive calendar is bursting with events from its Christmas Inspiration Evenings and ‘How To’ Workshops to Tea with Santa and a Festive Fun Weekend - and central to all the fun is the Centre’s spectacular Winter Food Market. Launched last year, the Winter Food Market returns in style with its traditional wood chalets, twinkling lights, sizzling sausages and sweet crêpes creating a delicious winter wonderland.

And this year Bents have added even more to the menu with a pulled beef Yorkshire pudding wrap, mushroom sandwich and festive cheesecake, as well as more dates for its evening entertainment programme, with live music every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday evenings from 6 – 8pm. Add to all of this its undercover, all-weather location and their Winter Food Market is the perfect alternative to the busy city centre streets.

A family business, grown with love

Bents really is bigger and better than ever before, but as Managing Director Matthew Bent explains, it still has family at its heart: ‘Despite our growth and expansion we are still a family owned and run business committed to retaining the intimate and friendly environment and same levels of service that we’ve established a reputation for. We aim to provide our visitors with a quality alternative to large scale shopping centres without losing any of the choice, quality and levels of service that are the very essence of Bents.’

Bents is the UK’s Best Destination Garden Centre 2018, as awarded by the Garden Centre Association, and also holds the title of Best Christmas Display in the UK, one which it is hoping to replicate in 2018 with this year’s spectacular winter wonderland.

The Winter Food Market is open daily from 12 o’clock. For full opening hours and details of all events, and how to book, visit
