We are celebrating the Jubilee weekend with two days of Garden Party and Fête around the castle, aiming to evoke the 1950s and encouraging visitors to come in period dress. The bunting is up, and the gravel has been raked.
There will be rowing boats on the lake, with swing boats on the land. The courtyard will have a display of vintage Land Rovers and Jaguars, with a children’s entertainer to amuse the crowd. My traction engine will be pitting its weight and strength in a tug of war, encouraged by the music of a 50’s band.
Even if the sun does not shine all the time, we are sure people will have a great time.
