We’re not going to lie - the market does get quite busy at night, so head in early to ensure that you have the chance to taste a little bit of everything.

Enjoy A Film at the Moonlight Cinema

If you’re a movie buff, you’re going to love the Moonlight Cinema which is situated at the Central Lawn in the Royal Botanic Gardens. You can enjoy some of the latest movies that have been released whilst laying on a picnic mat and snacking on some of the amazing food provided by Black Swan.

Head To The Beach for A Swim
