June

June signals the arrival of the long (hopefully warm) summer, so get adventurous and get outside for some family fun! Go orienteering in Lyme Park, or on a summer deer walk in Tatton Park. For a real blast from the past, head to Bramhall’s “step back in time” festival, or for a modern festival make your way to the Cheshire County Show. Maybe you would rather stay inside and get creative? No problem! Get card making at the Hat Works. Whatever your tastes, there are plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained in June.

Medieval Fayre
The Medieval Fayre, in association with Plantagenet Events, re-creates a summer solstice spectacle. With hundreds of re-enactors and over 40 authentic traders and artisans the fayre is one of the most atmospheric events in the living history calendar. Good food, ale and mead will refresh the visitor and revive battle weary troops while music will stir the soul. Minstrels, mercenaries, men-at-arms, archers, gunners, falconers and a ragtag army of hangers-on add to the atmospheric backdrop. All is not quite what it seems though. Despite all the fun of the fayre, a jealous neighbour and his army are determined to wrest the Old Hall from its rightful owner. The ensuing Battle of Tatton Field finale each day promises to be exciting and noisy as rivalry comes into play.
Cost: The Old Hall is open for tours. Adult £7.50, Child (ages 4-15) £5, Family (2A+3Ch) £20. Car entry charges apply.
