Sewerby Hall and Gardens has two weeks of family fun activities planned for the Easter holidays. Between Friday, 25 March and Monday, 11 April, there are plenty of activities and events planned for visitors young and old alike.
The line-up includes an appearance by the Easter Bunny showing off his fantastic balloon modelling skills, Punch and Judy Shows, Easter hat making sessions, a craft fair, the ever-popular Medieval Jousting, interactive and educational animal handling sessions, a fun-packed Magic Day with donkey rides and magic shows, brand-new Rusticus Theatre Arts activities, and circus workshop sessions accompanied by the normal high standard of Orangery concerts. Further details including times and dates can be found in the event section of the website.
Kicking off the exhibitions in the house and running until Sunday, 12 June is ‘The English Dance of Death’, a selection of original prints from 1815/16 by Thomas Rowlandson (1756- 1827), who is Britain’s best-loved draughtsman. In his drawings and the medium of the finely etched and subtly coloured prints, death appears as a skeleton to rich and poor alike, to claim the next contender with Rowlandson’s characteristic levity.
The new 2016 brochure and Spring Visitor Guide are now available from the Welcome Centre.
Admission charges are £6.50 for adults, £4.40 for children and £20 for a family (two adults and two children). There is no additional charge to attend events and activities unless otherwise stated.
