'Country House' colouring party at Bodiam Castle

The current craze for colouring books will hit the National Trust during April with the publication of the 'Country House colouring book', created for the Trust by Amy Jane Adams.

Come and join our colouring party

For those adults and children who love colouring books, there's the chance to enjoy an hour in the company of Amy Jane Adams, artist & historian, creator of the Country House colouring book, launched this April.  The Artwork in the book explores the design and former inhabitants of National Trust properties;  the fascinating collection is an imaginative and fun way to explore Britain's country houses and bring the history of these properties to colourful life.

Amy will be here at Bodiam Castle on Saturday 14 May with some giant posters that need colouring in. There are 2 sessions at 11am and 12.00 noon and all the materials are provided.  We have 20 places available for each session and these will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

If you get bitten by the colouring bug and want to colour in your own country houses, signed copies of Amy's book will be on sale in our Castle gift shop.
