Over the weekend of 16th and 17th August, young people of all ages are welcome to take part in a special children’s activity weekend at Haddon Hall, near Bakewell

Games, activities, storytelling and amusements from throughout history will be on offer for children and their families to try, including lawn games, face painting and Tudor costumes to dress-up in.

It’s the first time historic Haddon Hall, located in the heart of the Peak District, has hosted an event like this, which brings together pastimes from different periods of history for children to experience today.

Games and activities will be set up throughout the hall and grounds as visitors make their way around the estate.

‘Sometimes it’s the simple games like dressing up, skittles and quoits which are most fun, and we are really encouraging outdoor play here at Haddon, especially during summer months,’ explains Vikki Stronge, Visitor Services Manager at Haddon Hall. ‘We hope children from across the region and those who are here on holiday will come along to Haddon and take part in our fun-packed weekend.’

Haddon Hall’s summer holiday children’s weekend takes place on 16th and 17th August. A family ticket entry to Haddon Hall is £28 for 2 adults and up to 3 children. The Hall, garden and grounds will be open as usual during the weekend.
