This summer we're inviting you to experience an afternoon of traditional Georgian elegance. Try your hand at eighteenth century card games, take a look inside the newly installed pavilion by Heather and Ivan Morison in the walled garden and see captivating exhibitions in the mansion.

As part of the new installation by internationally renowned artists Heather and Ivan Morison; 'Look!Look!Look!', we wanted to bring you an afternoon of sophistication, Georgian taste and a daring card game.

Learn all of the tricks of the trade

You will be joined by ‘The Mannered Mob’ who will be introducing you to the authentic Georgian games and styles probably once played at Berrington. They will be telling you all about the tricks of the trade and the Georgian etiquette.

With the mansion and gardens open, food and drink available from the tea room and a chance to experience the gardens as the Georgians intended, this certainly is a different way to fill your summer afternoon.

The second event is taking place on Saturday 16 September, 11am to 4pm.

The event is free, normal admission applies.
