At 12 noon on Tuesday 26 May 26th we’re throwing open our doors at Dartington - to welcome you onto our estate for a day packed with fun family activities. Come and experience the beauty of the Dartington Hall grounds and gardens and help celebrate the Trust’s 90th year. Free entry and parking for all.

Share the fun - bring your family, your friends and your neighbours. Join us for a glimpse and a flavour of what we’re about - there is plenty to see and do. Bring your own picnic to enjoy on the Great Lawn whilst listening to live music or enjoy our pop up BBQ using locally sourced burgers and salads. On the day there will be activities galore for all ages – including a Qigong Sword demo, archery, storytelling, acting workshops, face painting, wild weaving, Extraordinary School taster sessions, porridge jousting, petting cows and lambs and much, much more.

And new this year, many of the social enterprises and businesses based across our estate will also be on hand to give you an insight into what they do. Look out for the best bushcraft course and wild event specialists WildWise, find out more about the many health and wellbeing practitioners working on the estate and enjoy Mike Gardner Woodmanship’s display and learn about the our woodlands and their future. What’s not to like?

‘We’ve had a lot of fun - the kids have had loads to do and we particularly liked the activities in the playground’

We look forward to seeing you. Just turn up – no need to book. The fun starts at 12 noon.
