    Tatton Park hosts a terrific celebration of country life this Bank Holiday weekend, as traditional fun and games, crafts, activities, food and drink take over at the Farm!

    The Farm is set in a corner of the Park know as Tatton Dale and was, in its heyday, at the heart of the vast Egerton estate, feeding family, guests and staff at the mansion. Visitors will be able to take a step back in time to meet some of the characters who lived and worked there, including Aunt Mary making butter in her Cottage, as well as the recently restored Mill and machinery in action.

    There are favourite childhood games such as egg-and-spoon races, and the chance to show your strength in a tug-of-war! Farmyard friends will be getting involved too with sheep racing throughout the weekend and sheepdog demonstrations on Sunday. Don’t miss the Morris dancers!

    Visitors can also learn about traditional country crafts with dry stone walling demonstrations, and the Cheshire Guild of Spinners on hand to show how fleece is spun into yarn.

    There’s also a chance to discover where your food comes from as part of our ongoing ‘Field to Fork’ activities with cookery demonstrations as well as traditional stalls offering a range of local ice-cream and cheeses, old-fashioned sweets and Tatton’s own produce.

    Jayne Chapman, Farm Manager said, “This weekend is packed full of fun for all the family. If you’ve never been to the Farm before, come along and experience all there is to offer on this 40 acre site – you won’t be disappointed!”

    The ‘Traditional Country Weekend at the Farm’ takes place this Bank Holiday at Tatton Park, from noon to 5pm on Saturday 24th, Sunday 25thand Monday 26th August, with last admission at 4pm. The daily programme varies, so look out for details on the day.
