This Open Estate Day falls on Squirrel Appreciation Day! To embrace the nature theme, we will be welcoming our Forest School to run some of the activities taking place.
Find them in the Terrace Room to make your own leaf art squirrel, using natural materials from our beautiful park. There will be a wildlife scavenger hunt taking place in the Banqueting Room and Grand Staircase. The Forest School will also be running a competition to win free Forest School sessions.
