Game On!: Attingham's Big Sports Weekend

Visitors to Attingham Park playing croquet in front of the Mansion

Try something new this May Bank Holiday weekend at Game On!, Attingham Park’s sports festival, celebrating and showcasing some great sports from the local area.

Game on! Attingham’s Festival of Sport will run from Saturday 30 April to Monday 2 May, between 11am and 4pm. You’ll have the chance to explore Attingham and find activities and taster sessions across the grounds. 

Each day, we’ll be hosting Attingham Games with sports day style activities in front of the Mansion and in the Playfield we’ll be putting out our sports equipment so you can have a go at activities like badminton, volleyball and time challenges with skipping ropes and hoops.
