Get Sussed out for Summer at Sudbury
We’ve got summer covered here at Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood, help is at hand for those who want a little bit of summer holiday inspiration! From outdoor theatre to gluing and sticking there’s something to suit every little adventurer.
Drop in Crafts
Running Monday to Friday throughout the summer holidays we’ll be making all sorts, every week there’ll be a different craft activity. There’s no need to book just come along and visit us in the stable yard craft tent (weather permitting). Have a go at making your very own monster out of clay or perhaps a creepy crawly caterpillar. Come back throughout the holidays to try something different every time you visit.
1960’s Story Trail
Calling all explorers! Pick up a trail sheet and follow the clues around the grounds of Sudbury Hall on our 1960's Story Trail. Seek out all of the iconic 1960’s stories, grown up explorers might just remember some of them. So whether you’re on a nostalgic adventure or hearing them for the first time it’s a bit of fun for everyone.
Bookable craft workshops
Come and make your very own space mouse to take home with you, make him out of felt and even design him a space age outfit! We’ll be running a few of these sessions throughout the summer, be sure to book on soon as they’re very popular.
Practice your pirate skills
Ahoy Mateys! On Wednesday 2 August the Lost Boys Theatre Duo are paying us a visit, they’ll be testing out your piratical skills to see if you’re fit for a life on the seven seas!
