Boughton House is gearing up for its Easter opening, which will allow visitors to experience its history, heritage and art collection in a three-day event on April 19, 20 and 21.

The gardens, gift shop and café at the stately home near Geddington will be open from midday to 5pm each day, with tours of the house itself operating from 2pm to 4pm.

Charles Lister, Boughton House Property Manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming visitors to the estate over the Easter Bank Holiday.

“Boughton is steeped in history and culture, which we are eager to celebrate with our guests. We hope to make it a memorable and enjoyable experience for all.”

Boughton is also celebrating another jam-packed summer events schedule, and has recently announced a rare performance at the House by the Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble on July 13, while endurance race Tough Mudder is returning to the estate on July 12 and 13.

Visitors will also have another chance to visit the estate when the House and gardens open every day in August, while an open-air film screening is scheduled for August 2 to 3. Other events over the summer include an art, craft and design fair on August 9 and 10, the Alt Festival between August 15 and 17 and the Greenbelt Festival from August 23 to 25.

Mr Lister added: “These are exciting times for Boughton, with lots of special events coming up, including weddings and summer concerts and festivals. It’s wonderful that more and more people are becoming part of Buccleuch’s history.’
