October half-term fun
There's lots going on this October half-term including clay modelling on Saturday 28 October and a Meet the Builders day on Tuesday 24 October.
This half-term you could take part in the hibernation trail which runs from Saturday 21 October until Sunday 29 October (£1, includes a prize). The trail is all about animals which hibernate over the winter and signs to spot them when they wake up.
Or you can take part in the crafty castle capers activity on the weekend of the 28 and 29 October, 11am-4pm. On Saturday 28 the craft activity will be clay modelling (£2).
Or on Tuesday 24 October, 11am-4pm join us for Meet the Builder’s day. There will be demonstrations including lime slaking, carpentry, window restoration and displays of the tools the builders would have used 100 years ago. There will also be special behind the scenes tours on the roof. (If you’d like to go on a roof tour please wear stout shoes, no shorts or skirts, no children under 16 years of age, places are first come, first serve and are £5 per person).
The trees are turning lovely colours of amber and orange, to admire the changing colours and crunchy leaves you could walk down to the river and back up to the castle.
