Mother Nature is revealing the signs of spring and Tatton Park will be joining her in unveiling many of its own secrets. Will you be the first to discover the ‘Secret Stories’ of Tatton Park?
From Good Friday (14th April) to Easter Monday (17th April) children and adults can follow trails in the Mansion, Gardens and Farm to earn some secret chocolate treasure and join in the fun at the Stableyard with magic tricks, storytelling, puppet shows, face painting, glitter tattoos and some top-secret craft activities.
In the Mansion, they’ve forgotten the secret code to the safe! Follow the trail through the Mansion with the help of Tatton’s butler, housekeeper and servants who will also be on hand to help visitors crack the six-digit code as they discover clues along the way. Make it to the butler’s pantry to hand in your answers and hopefully open the safe to claim some chocolate treasure! Family activities will also be taking place in the amber bedroom and cellars.
Children can also spot the homes of undercover helpers in the Gardens – some of Tatton’s permanent residents, including fairies, pixies and elves. These magical creatures do their secret work at night helping to keep the gardens in tip-top shape. Will you be able to spot their homes in the 50-acre gardens to claim even more secret chocolate treasure?
Discover the people helping us at the Farm and the work they do behind the scenes. What does the sheep scanner, the vet, the cattle hoof trimmer and equine dentist do to help look after the animals? Which one of these characters is hiding the chocolate treasure and can you find it? Watch the secret miracle that’s happening in Tabitha, their Shire horse’s tummy. If you get lucky, you could even get a visit from their newly-born Easter lambs!
And there’s so much more! Join in the laughter and fun in the Stableyard where Poz the magician will dazzle visitors with his slight of hand. One of the north’s best loved entertainers, Mr Bimbamboozle, returns with his Punch and Judy puppet theatre. A storyteller will be weaving some tales about the people in Tatton’s history – it’s up to you to decide if he’s telling the truth or a tall tale!
