The Summer of Fun at Sewerby Hall and Gardens has started, with a varied programme of activities planned throughout the school holidays.

Following on from last week’s Rusticus performances and the magic day and face painting, the theatre group will be at the venue again today (Thursday 26 July).

The Shipwreck! show will run at 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm.

There’s also classic family games and the Festival of Archaeology.

Other highlights of the Summer of Fun will include Yorkshire Day next Wednesday (1 August) from 11am to 3pm with a spectacular celebration of all things Yorkshire: music, activities, Morris Dancing, and fun and games such as Yorkshire Pudding and spoon races, Yorkshire flag making, and donkey rides.

The hall will also be hosting a brand new event, The Sewerby Food Festival, on Sunday 12 August.

‘A Taste of the Coast’ will be a celebration of local food producers and their products and will see a wide range of food and drink available, as well as lots of activities for a fun-filled day out.

Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said: “The Summer of Fun at Sewerby Hall and Gardens promises six weeks of great fun, with events and activities, as well as concerts in the Orangery and of course all the regular features.”
