Sewerby Hall and Gardens are hosting a superb programme of events this Easter weekend.
The ever-popular Medieval Jousting spectacular returns once again - on Easter Sunday (1 April), the Knights of Nottingham will take over the front field and present a performance of jousting, sword fighting and much more. Displays will be at 1pm and 2.30pm.
There is so much more to see and do this weekend, with a range of activities for the whole family from Good Friday through to Easter Monday.
Good Friday (30 March) will include Easter Bonnet and Easter Egg Making sessions, a chance to make bonnets or Easter bunny ears to wear, and decorate Easter eggs; donkey rides; swing boat rides; and Punch and Judy shows. Staff from RSPB Bempton will also be on site to help visitors give nature a home, wherever they live.
Saturday (31 March) will also feature Easter Bonnet and Easter Egg making sessions; donkey rides; face painting; staff from RSPB Bempton on site; and the Easter Bunny will be balloon modelling.
Easter Sunday (1 April) will see a Craft Fair in the Orangery, with high quality, hand crafted goods for sale; staff from RSPB Bempton; and the medieval jousting.
To round off the long weekend, Easter Monday will highlight donkey rides; Punch and Judy shows; and swing boat rides.
