Half term fun with Dudmaston's Great Garden Games (21st May 2013)

Half term fun with Dudmaston's Great Garden Games

Last year we had London 2012, this year why not get in training for Dudmaston's Great Garden Games. During the Whitsun half-term holiday families are being encouraged to get down to the property and challenge each other as competitors in the games.

There will be a number of games situated across the property suitable for all members of the family to get involved in, ranging from Slug Quoits in the kitchen garden to hula hooping in Gerards' Wood; and contestants will be set various challenges to complete along the way. 

Visitor Experience Officer, Ruth Watson said "this is a great opportunity for families to challenge each other whilst having great fun.  All the team at Dudmaston have been trying out the games, so we are hoping that visitors will be able to beat our scores and are looking forward to discovering who our champions are each day."

Every child who takes part in the games will receive a prize and will also have the opportunity to take part in making some of their own games to take home.  The games will run on 26, 27 and 29 May from 11am until 5pm. 

Further information on the games can be found by calling the property on (01746) 780866 or by taking a look at Dudmaston's website www.nationaltrust.org.uk/dudmaston
