The seventeenth century Barn Theatre puts on a different kind of showstopper. From slithering snakes to winged friends, the new Kent Wildlife Trust Photography Competition 2016 exhibition celebrates nature in bold, brilliant colour. Free event, 1 March to 23 April.
The world-famous garden reopens fully this month with a season of colour in store. Time spent exploring its inside spaces reveals different stories. Newly-found eighteenth-century carvings in the tower, likely forged in the Seven Years War, are a window to lesser-known eras. Open daily, 11am to 4pm.
In April, a new exhibition at Scotney Castle will celebrate its first writer in residence, Jamie Rhodes. Displays feature artwork from ‘A Castle in England’, his inaugural graphic fiction novel inspired by our collection. Original sketches will accompany hidden objects brought to life in his stories. Open daily, 1 to 24 April.
Members of our National Trust supporter groups in Sussex help fund raise for places like Nymans and Sheffield Park - they also get together for days out and talks and tours or volunteer at their local place.
This Easter enjoy an outdoor adventure. Find a Cadbury Egg Hunt at many places over the whole holidays. Plus there's plenty more activities from crafts to garden trails and chances to go wild in natural play areas and woodland across the south east.
Spring has sprung and the birds are singing. Welcome in the season at our London gardens, orchards and parks. Seek out spring bulbs and blossom at Fenton House or Red House, heritage tulips at Ham House and Garden and carpets of bluebells at Osterley Park
