Included in the day’s attractions will be a Punch and Judy show, a magic show, an owl display, various stalls and live music.

There will also be arts and crafts such as wood carving, silver jewellery making, card making, mosaics, parchment craft, embroidery, beadwork, bobbin lace, patchwork and thatching.

Refreshments will be available including a hog roast, assorted homemade treats, a pudding club, a Pimms tent, whilst a bar will be open all day.

Councillor Heather Smith, county council cabinet member for customer services said: “The annual Knuston Hall open day is always a great day out for the whole family, with a host of fun activities and entertainment on offer throughout the day as well as the chance to visit one of the county’s beautiful historic buildings. It’s also a chance for people to see for themselves how Knuston Hall offers the perfect surroundings for anyone wishing to learn new skills and crafts.”

The event is open from 11am until 4pm with free entrance and parking.
