Summer of Play at The Firs

Come on a musical journey with us at The Firs this summer.

Join in with our music themed Summer of Play!

Make some noise on our woodland drumkit or discover and experiment with musical compositions in the sound garden. Play traditional games such as croquet and much more!

Don’t forget to stop by Elgar’s first home and have a go at playing the violin. Also, explore the quaint English Cottage Garden where pretty flowers are in bloom.
