This half-term holiday there is something for everyone at Lytham Hall.
From Saturday 27 May until Friday 2 June we are organising an explorer week for families. The idea for an explorer week comes from the Lytham Hall history books. The Lord of the Manor John Talbot Clifton (1868-1928) travelled the world throughout his life and explored South America, Siberia, Japan, Africa and the United States. He even sat on top of a dead mammoth and ate bear soup in Russia.
We know that there is lots to explore at Lytham Hall too! Between 12pm and 3pm every day pick up a flag trail from the tea room green for £2 and match the flags on the South Prospect with the countries. Every day at 1pm and 3pm there will also be an expedition up Mount Cliftonia, led by our very own volunteer Stuart, in explorer garb. Only the bravest dare tread where he goes.
Back by popular demand in the half-term week is our Bee Awareness Day, organised by Blackpool Beekeepers Association, who run an apiary in Lytham Hall’s parkland. On Tuesday 30 May from 11am you will be able to see inside a hive, learn all about bees and taste different sorts of honey. There are also small workshops on nail varnishing, candle rolling and such. Parking is £1 and the workshops carry a small price.
The weekend of 3 and 4 June we have the Spring Art and Craft Fair from Hopeful and Glorious, where you will see over 35 regional artists and their fantastic wares.
