ACTOR Martin Clunes flicked the switch to light up Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens at a charity launch last night.
The Doc Martin star was on hand to officially open the attraction’s annual Enchanted Floodlit Gardens extravaganza.
Mr Clunes, who lives near Beaminster, turned on the lights at the charity preview in aid of the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust.
The floodlighting of the garden carries on after the charity preview night every night until November 3.
The gardens will stay open until 8.30pm every night and the floodlighting is turned on at dusk.
There are also three Halloween family fright nights, on Thursday, October 31, Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2.
There will be a laser rave, a spider and snakes tent, a spooky children’s entertainer, fire breather, scary roaming monster, scary scars, face painting and witches.
Weldmar director of fundraising Caroline Nickinson said: “We are delighted to have been offered the opportunity of the charity preview evening at Abbotsbury Gardens.
“We would also like to thank Martin Clunes who has once again this year agreed to switch on the lights.”
