Sat 29 – Mon 31 Aug. Step back in time to the 18th Century as the grounds come alive to the sights and sounds of life as a soldier of King George III. We’ll be bringing to life one of Tyntesfield’s lesser known portraits and celebrating 240 years since the Battle of Bunker Hill. The day culminates in a grand skirmish, which pits the forces of His Majesty against the American rebels.
1917 Sopwith Pup
An original First World War night fighter aircraft, a Sopwith Pup B1807, is due to set up camp in the grounds of Tyntesfield this summer.
From Tue 18 Aug – Fri 28 Aug the aircraft, the only original Sopwith Pup in existence which served with the Royal Flying Corps (RFC), will be stationed here as part of its First World War commemorations.
Join us on Sat 19 Sep in Tyntesfield’s great hall for an evening of classical music and fine art. The Florentine Arts Ensemble will guide you through some of Tyntesfield’s impressive collection of pastoral works, accompanied by the music of the great English composers including Delius and Vaughan Williams.
