This month at East Riddlesden Hall
We've got lots of things to keep the whole family entertained this May and hidden areas to discover such at the wild play area. Can you reach the end of the fallen log without falling off?
Whether it's making mud pies for the whole family to enjoy or hunting for bugs in the undergrowth, we've got everything you need for a great family day out, please download the spring/summer 2018 what's on leaflet for full details.
If you're thinking of visiting us this month, here are some things that you might not want to miss:
Butter-making in the barn
Every alternate Sunday from 6 May, 2-3pm
Do you know how butter was traditionally made? How long did it take? How was it stored? Uncover the history of butter-making at one of these drop-in sessions. Join our volunteer in the Great Barn and try your hand at the age old tradition of butter making. Race against your familiy to see who can make butter the fastest? £2 per participating person.
Plant it, grow it, eat it
Saturday 26 May - Sunday 3 June, 1-3pm (closed on Friday 1 June)
Roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty planting seeds with help from our volunteers. There are beans and pumpkin seeds to plant that you can take home to care for. Watch as your seeds grow into something tasty to eat, or carve a scary face in your pumpkin at Hallowe'en. This is a drop in session, please join us at any time between 1pm - 3pm.
Thursday 31 May, 11.30am-12noon and 2-2.30pm
Experience tastes and smells of the past at these gingerbread making sessions. Our costumed volunteer will be making gingerbread the traditional way. Smell the spices and taste the finished product - how does it compare to today's gingerbread?
General admission prices apply - free entry for National Trust members and under 5s.
