May half term at Trerice
Dress up like a Tudor with the whole family, plant seeds to watch them grow and explore Trerice in a nature themed trail.
As spring leads to summer and the days get longer May half-term arrives at Trerice with a Tudor costume day, storytelling in the second-hand bookshop, #50 things to do before you’re 11¾ fun, a nature trail and games in the garden.
On Monday 27 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 sessions (admission applies).
Visit the second-hand bookshop to hear stories in one of the scheduled storytelling sessions (timings TBC). You can also explore the second-hand bookshop for more books! There’s a wide selection of books for children and adults available and the donations help us to look after Trerice.
Tick off one of your #50 things to do before you’re 11¾ and help a plant to grow with the garden team. You’ll plant seeds ready to take home and help grow – send us your photos once they’ve fully bloomed on Twitter or Facebook! Explore the garden in a nature themed trail whatever the weather! Look high and low for clues around Trerice and when you’ve found them all return to reception for a trail badge.
Enjoy the late spring sun and have a go at Cornish kayles, Tudor slapcock or quoits in the garden. If the weather’s bad make a brass rubbing and try on costumes in the hayloft or dress for battle and try on armour in the hall.
