"The Topsy-Turvy Tea Party" A Jubilant Rusticus Adventure at Tatton Park – Monday, May 28th to Sunday, June 5th

The Book of Legends reopens this bank holiday weekend in Tatton Park. With a simple twist of the word "fete", you'll be whisked away on a whirlwind voyage to meet a variety of exuberant revellers set on a grand party. This isn't your typical garden party! Find Musical Mayhem in Ancient Greece, forest fun with a fabled outlaw, and toilet tea time with the Mad Hatter! And, to commemorate our Queen's jubilee, bring your own royal feast (and picnic rug) to eat in the spectacular forest glade.

This 45-minute interactive story tour visits the Tower Garden, pine forest walks, and Choragic monument, among other historic beauty points in the garden. Performances are held at 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.

This unique event is free of charge; usual garden and parkland entry costs apply (free for National Trust members but remember there is still a car park charge to pay). You will find updated information on this event here.
