Get stuck in this Autumn

Kite making, bird watching and camp fires are part of the daily activities at Sacrewell this autumn.

From 5 September – 30 October (including October half-term), make the most of the British countryside with the visitor centre’s programme of events which will run every day.

With mud painting with natural paint brushes, leaf decorated candle jars and making bird feeders also on the agenda, visitors will leave full of inspiration and ideas to make the most of the autumn.

Events officer Jack Pishhorn said: “We want children to gets hands on with nature this autumn, teaching them to use natural resources to create fun and engaging activities.

“It’s a great time of year to be outside learning about wildlife and the opportunities the British countryside offers.”

Sacrewell classics such as den building, animal handling and mill tours will also be included in the programme, which has been specifically designed to appeal to different age groups. Pre-school activities will be run throughout the week with activities for older children at weekends.

“We know that different people visit us at different times of the week, so we wanted to provide activities that would appeal to them, as well as our regular weekend visitors,” Jack added.

Surcharges apply to some activities.
