Big Sunday, this Sunday at Compton Verney

Interested in traditional crafts such as thatching, brick making and stone masonry? Maybe hand crafting things from easily found timber, or wood turning and weaving to create chairs for example? Well, Big Sunday, this Sunday at Compton Verney is the place to be!

At Big Sunday you’ll have chance to have a go at some of the activities mentioned above, and hear from wise folk about bee keeping, butterflies, and the geology of Compton Verney. There’s even some traditional folk tales thrown in for good measure!

As always there will be plenty for the family to experience from butterfly walks and open air storytelling sessions to the popular woodland adventure playground.

I hope you’ll agree that this event in particular is an engaging one if you love historic buildings, estates and life that surrounds them.  Do join us for a one-day celebration of plant life, wildlife and traditional crafts. This Sunday from 11am – 5pm. #CVGrounds
