May Bank Holiday Weekend

Sunshine or rain we have activities for all the family to enjoy, no matter what the weather!

Join in with our weaving activity, as we invite visitors to help us create colourful pieces of art for the Park at Compton Verney or to take home. Our drop-in weaving workshop will take place in the Studio so don’t worry if it’s a wet weekend. Come along and use wool, ribbon, recycled and natural materials to weave your way through the Bank Holiday.

Things to do outside

Explore our ‘Capability’ Brown park and discover all our activities we have on offer; whether that’s unwinding through a walk on the new pathways, getting closer to wildlife through our bird hide and pond dipping platform, roaming through Ice House Coppice on the Shakespeare Heart Trail or swinging and climbing in our adventure playground.
