The Eden Project will reopen in time for its evening Christmas show, after being closed due to flooding.

Shadows and Light will go ahead on Saturday evening, but not in The Core education building.

The Santa shows will also be running from 5.30pm but the ice rink will remain closed.

Bosses have apologised to visitors and are promising refunds or exchanges for anyone who was booked.

They say they expect to be open as normal on Sunday but are urging customers to check their website and social media before travelling.

"Following the closure earlier today due to flood water, the Eden Project will re-open at 5pm today (Saturday December 15).

"The Shadows and Light Christmas experience is taking place around the site but not in the Core education building this evening. The ice rink will not be open this evening.

"The fully booked Father Christmas shows will be running from 5:30 onwards tonight. We plan to put on additional Father Christmas slots on Monday and Tuesday evening at 7.30pm. These need to be booked in advance and will be available on the website soon.

"Eden apologises to visitors who had planned to visit today for the inconvenience caused by the closure. Refunds or exchanges will be given to those who have booked and who were not able to attend.

"We expect to open tomorrow (Sunday 16 December). Please check our website and social media before setting off for the site and for updates".
