A Norfolk garden centre will kick off the festive season in style with a Christmas lights switch-on transforming the space into an enchanted forest.

Peter Beales Roses in London Road, Attleborough, is running a free festive event on Friday, November 12 from 5pm until 8.30pm.

The lights in the rose gardens will be switched on at 7pm and there is an enchanted forest theme this year. 

Visitors will be able to enjoy free mulled wine and mince pies, while supplies last, and holly wreath demonstrations will take place.
