The Father's Day Challenges at Ham House
Join us on Sunday June 17 for our Father's Day challenges at Ham House. We will have a butter making challenge, beer tasting challenge and tea-cup races. Get ready for a day full of fun and competitive Dads!
This Father's Day we are throwing down the gauntlet and challenging families to make butter, taste beer and run with a tea-filled tea-cup.
In celebration of the hard working servants who lived at Ham House in the 17th Century you will be completing challenges that they would have had to do.
Challenge 1: Butter making
Can you shake the jam jar fast enough to churn cream into butter?
Challenge 2: Beer tasting
Parent's get to sip a 17th century recipe beer and together as a family you must taste and smell the ingredients in front of you and decide which ones were used to make this delicious brew.
Challenge 3: King Dad crown making
After all your hard work completing challenges, Dad's and guardians need a reward. Little ones can go to our Education Room below stairs to make their dads a crown beffitng a king.
Challenge 4: Tea-cup races
Races run at 1, 2 and 3pm on the lawn at the back of the house
The Duchess urgently needs her cup of tea and biscuit. Servant dads will join us for a race to get the cup of tea to the Duchess the fastest, picking up a biscuit on the way. The winner of each race will win a Dad's cream tea at our Cafe; a cream tea with a bottle of beer.
