KIDS visiting Sewerby Hall and Gardens every weekend through until December will be sure to have a ‘dead’ good time.

The Hall will host the CBBC Live ‘n’ Deadly wildlife adventure show for kids for free over the next few months.

Fronted by Steve Backshall and Naomi Wilkinson, the popular CBBC show invites kids to learn more about nature and wildlife.

Sewerby Hall’s Deadly Scene Investigation will present children with a ‘wildlife crime scene’ every Saturday between 11am and 2pm from October 1, until December 3, and invites them to figure out who’s eaten who.

Each child is given a Deadly Detective’s booklet from the Estate Office before exploring the grounds to look for clues.

The booklet includes a range of activities, to encourage families to enjoy the nature and wildlife at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, and a series of puzzles which help children to solve the deadly scene. Children then hand in their answers at the Clock Tower Tea Rooms to collect their reward - a special code that unlocks exclusive content on Live ‘n’ Deadly’s online game.

The interactive website offers games, clips and a message board, and BBC Learning runs a series of UK-wide Deadly Day Out events.

This event is free and there is no need to book and is suitable for children aged 5-13, appropriate clothing for the weather, and pens or pencils, are required.
