Strike a Pose May half-term trail

Children on the Strike a Pose half-term trail

Take the art of the mansion outdoors in this May half-term trail running from Saturday 27 May to Sunday 6 June. Strike your best pose on plinths in the Pleasure Ground inspired by some of the sculptures on display at Petworth.

Go on a trail around the Pleasure Grounds and with the help of your trail sheet strike your best pose inspired by some of the sculptures on display in the mansion. Discover the story behind some of these artworks to really bring their character to life in your own statuesque position.

Play along on your smartphone or tablet and capture your best poses with a picture and share them with us on social media using the hashtag #StrikeAPose.

What sculptures will you bring to life and what stories will you uncover about their history as you journey the Pleasure Grounds? WIll you pretend to be one of the Greek Gods on display in the mansion or perhaps one of the many Roman Emporers?
