There is plenty to see and do all week for people of all ages, from family craft activities, trying a tasty treat in our tearoom to celebrating Charles II's birthday in style.

 

This is a great opportunity to complete some of the '50 things to do before you’re 11¾' by building a den, making a mud creation and getting to know a tree (hide). Don't forget to collect one of our new '50 things' leaflets from one of our team.

Why do we celebrate Oak Apple Day?

In 1660, to celebrate Charles II's Return to his Parliament, 29th May was made a public holiday, popularly known as Oak Apple Day. Incidentally this was also His Majesty's birthday. We will be celebrating this year by wearing a sprig of oak, and children can mark the occasion too by decorating their own paper crown and making the king a birthday card.
