Knuston Hall near Irchester will be throwing its doors open once again for its annual open day on Bank Holiday Monday.

The free event is a chance for people to find out more about the range of activities and services offered by the adult residential college as well as the opportunity to visit Europe’s last remaining thatching school, and look around the grade two listed Knuston Hall and its grounds.

Included in the day’s attractions will be live music and arts and craft demonstrations 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 home-made treats, a pudding club and a Pimms tent, while a bar will be open all day.

Cllr 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.”

The event is open from 11am until 4pm on Monday, August 27, with free entry and parking.
