Half term fun at Trerice

It’s going to be a busy half term at Trerice with a Tudor Costume Day, 50 things activities and two weddings (as well as the usual fun and games)!

On Monday 28 May the Trerice Costume Group will start the week with a Tudor costume day. Try on replica clothes for the whole family (yes, even Dad) in one of two free sessions (admission applies).

Tuesday and Wednesday (29 & 30 May) tick off #36 of your #50 things to do before you’re 11¾ and make a home for a wild animal! Making a bee hotel (£2 each, admission applies) and putting one up in your garden will help encourage a bee friendly habitat.

You can never predict which way the Cornish weather will go, luckily there are Tudor games inside and out at Trerice! Have a go at kayles, slapcock or quoits in the garden or nine men’s morris, fox and geese or game of the goose in the great chamber – these are also available to buy in the shop.

On Thursday 31 May and Saturday 2 June we will be celebrating two weddings at Trerice, which will mean that some areas of the property will be closed. If you’re planning to visit on either of these days you’ll be advised about closures by the reception team or check the Trerice website for details.
