Join us during May half term for some outdoor family fun

Celebrate Oak Apple Day in style

This May half term you and your family can come and celebrate Oak Apple Day in style. Oak Apple Day is the commemoration of Charles II's restoration to the throne of England on 29 May 1660, and also his birthday.

To mark this occassion join us by wearing a sprig of oak leaves to show your support for the king and avoid being thrashed with nettles!. You can also go on a hunt for natural materials to make your very own wild crown and decorate a special birthday card for the King. 

Oak Apple Day crafts are £1.50 per participating child and normal admission prices apply. These activities will be running from 11am - 3pm on Friday 29 May 2020.
