Family fun day at Sewerby

SEWERBY Hall and Gardens are hosting a day full of family activities on Sunday, May 29 from 10am-4.30pm.

Chainsaw carving is a very versatile art form, whether it is a standing tree trunk, a lump of timber or a planked board, all can be worked to make beautiful wooden sculptures and furniture for both indoors and outdoors and chainsaw carver Peter Leadbeater will give demonstrations of the art between 11am-4.30pm.

For impressive feats of strength, look no further than Adrian Smith - who came fifth in the World’s Strongest Man competition and is three times winner of UK’s Strongest Man competition - presenting a show geared for family fun with visual humour and audience participation.

Some of his talents include tearing up catalogues, bending six inch nails with his teeth, walking on a bed of broken glass, and holding a chair with a seated lady on it in his teeth. He will also be presenting a children’s tug of war with prizes. He will appear from 1pm-3.30pm.

A craft fair - by Double R Crafts - will be held in the Orangery between 10am and 4pm.
