The most gloriumptious things are set to happen at Tatton Park in 2016 as they embark on a magical journey celebrating 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl.
Working closely with the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and legendary illustrator Quentin Blake, the year-long programme of events at Tatton Park is just one of a host of activities taking place throughout 2016 as part of Roald Dahl 100.
Amongst the jam-packed year of surprises at Tatton Park are the most imaginative trails for children. From Easter to the end of September you’ll be invited to go on a journey with Danny the Champion of the World in the Gardens, Fantastic Mr Fox at the Farm and Matilda in the Mansion….and out in the Parkland The Enormous Crocodile will be lurking. Each trail has been lovingly imagined and brought to life by the teams at Tatton Park.
The Mansion team have been busy polishing Miss Trunchbull’s trophies and keeping the chockey locked up; the Gardeners have been catching pheasants with Danny; the Farm have been den building for Mr Fox’s Feast and the Rangers have been Roly-Poly Bird watching. (Keeping them safe from the Enormous Crocodile, who we heard was lurking).
The Tremendous Adventures start this Easter with a magical chocolatey time - children (ages 15 and under) grab your Golden Ticket at the gates then visit the Mansion, Gardens or Farm for your very own super scrummy tummy-tickling choccie bar and you could be in for a superlicious surprise.
Top off the day with spellbinding magic shows, captivating puppet theatre, interactive performances, storytelling, plus lots of chocolatey yummy treats in the Stables and Gardener’s Cottage Tea Room.
There’s also chocolate tasting in the Housekeeper's Store and a free Easter Gift Fair in Tenant’s Hall. It’s an Oompa Loompa-tastic way to spend your Easter.
Opening hours: Gardens 10am-6pm (last entry 5pm); Farm 12pm-5pm (last entry 4pm); Mansion (1pm to 5pm, last entry 4pm); Parkland open daily 10am to 7pm (last entry 6pm).
