Celebrate flowers and the coming of spring with Floras Holiday, a unique story and music journey which travels through the gardens and forests of Tower Hill Botanic Garden. This event, specially crafted for Tower Hill by master storyteller Diane Edgecomb and Celtic harper Margo Chamberlain, leads the audience to some of the gardens most beloved spots. Locations include an expansive field of 25,000 daffodils, a forest glade where Pan presides, a sunset balcony with expansive views of Mount Wachusett and an open-air gazebo where the haunting Persian legend of the Nightingale and the Rose will be told. The evenings tales, music and songs are drawn from Ancient Greek, Roman, Norse, Persian and Native American cultures delving into the mythical origins and meanings of favorite garden plants. Venture into spring with this enchanting evening stroll through Tower Hills botanic paradise. Appropriate for adults and for children twelve years and above. Bring a cushion to sit on if you wish. Registrants will walk approximately one mile on trails and sometimes uneven terrain. The performance takes place rain or shine. In the event of rain, it will be held in the theater. Each performance is limited to an audience of 30, so buy tickets early.
