Tasty food events

Why not join us for one of our tasty food events this season? For a taste of autumn, visit Level's Best Craft and Farmers Markets at Montacute House, or watch our cooks recreate a Victorian baking day at Cragside. For one of your five-a-day, we have apple events at Ightham Mote, Trelissick, Gibside, Erddig and lots more of our places.

A taster of forthcoming events

  • Hallowe'en events

    It’s that time of year when floorboards creak, chills run down your spine and things go bump in the night. From eerie trails and spooky story-telling to fearsome face painting and frightening fancy dress, there’s something to give the whole family the jitters.

  • Sporting events

    Join us this season on one of our outdoor activity events. We've 'have a go' archery sessions, Night Run's, Nordic walking, or a monthly walk with man's best friend - and that's just for starters. You're guaranteed to find something to get you out and enjoying the countryside.

  • Talks and guided tours

    Join us for one of our talks or tours and learn something new from our experts. Join a guided walk and see how many red squirrels you can spot at Brownsea Island, or why not commemorate the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas at Bateman's? There's lots to tempt you with and bring you a bit closer to our stories and heritage.

  • First World War centenary

    Our places have many stories to share, so take some time out this year to explore our exhibitions and collections, take a guided walk or discover the war memorials we care for. Help us commemorate the lives of those who were on the battlefield and on the home front by sharing their stories with you. Why not join in the conversation on Twitter (#WW1) or at one of our events?

  • Pets love summer

    Looking for great days out with your dog? We’ve teamed up with Vets4Pets and Companion Care to bring you a series of roadshows where you can meet their experts and find out how to keep your pets health, happy and safe this summer.
