February half term at Croome
Come rain or shine there'll be plenty of family fun during February half term at Croome. Enjoy some fresh air and go wild in the woods, or get creative indoors and discover intriguing stories from ages past.
'Make your own landscape' family trail
Saturday 16 February to Sunday 24 February - 10am to 4pm
'Capability’ Brown was a landscape garden visionary and created the landscape at Croome to be one of wonder at every turn along the pathways. Take your pencil and draw your own landscape. Stopping at key points you’ll see what Brown created, draw what you see and build up the landscape on paper as he would have done in the eighteenth century or but you may decide to design something else – why not add a big wheel, a roller-coaster or a zoo? The possibilities are endless.
£2 per trail - Normal admission applies.
Sat 16, Sun 17, Mon 18, Fri 22, Sat 23, Sun 24 February.
Fancy a different face today? Then pop along and meet Happy Faces who will create a wonderful new look for you. Choose a design from the board to meet the seasons and holidays throughout the year.
