Hall of fame For hundreds of years Haddon Hall, in the Peak District, has been welcoming visitors, always enchanting with its beauty and romance. Present-day Haddon Hall dates from the 12th Century to the early 17th Century, whereupon it lay dormant for over two hundred years from 1700 until the 1920s, when the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens, and once again made it habitable. Now home to Lord and Lady Edward Manners, Haddon Hall is one of England’s most elegant and timeless stately homes, and a magniďŹ cent example of a fortiďŹ ed manor house. Enjoying ďŹ ne Tudor and Elizabethan architecture, the Hall allows visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in centuries of history, art and craftsmanship, and to also explore the Hall’s magniďŹ cent cascading Tudor gardens. Haddon has become the choice location for many ďŹ lm-makers, playing host to no less than three versions of ‘Jane Eyre’, became Prince Humperdinck’s Castle in cult movie The Princess Bride and was also used in ‘Elizabeth’, ‘Pride & Prejudiceâ€?, ‘The Other Boleyn Girl' and BBC series ‘Gunpowder’ with stars such as Dame Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley and Kit Harrington all ďŹ lming at Haddon Hall over the last few decades. From March to the end of September, plus autumnal and Christmas periods, the Hall hosts a number of events that bring the stories of the past to life, with 2018 playing host to Guided Tours, Estate Walks, Sir John Savile’s Household, Musical Performances, Artisan Markets, Halloween and Christmas events and a whole host of events for children.

Where it all began... A

Edward Elgar was born in a small rural cottage in the village of Broadheath, Worcestershire on June 2nd 1857 - a day when â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The air was sweet with the perfume of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, bees were humming and all the earth was lovelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Although he only lived here until he was 2 years old, the romance of this recollection haunted his soul for the rest of his life. Once you have visited the Birthplace, you understand that behind the popular image of the upright Edwardian patriot lies a romantic, sensitive and often troubled soul. The recent acquisition of The Firs, Elgarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Birthplace by the National Trust sees new life breathed in to a place of remembrance and celebration that has existed since it was founded by Elgarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Carice in 1934. A place of inspiration, memories, music and reďŹ&#x201A;ection, it represents a journey starting with a balmy summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day in Victorian rural England and ending with the celebration of a lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work that all started right here. With live music, dynamic exhibits, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities and much more, a visit to The Firs, Elgarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Birthplace can inspire the whole family. For more information, full opening times, prices and events please visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/the-ďŹ rs or call 01905 333330.

Fun and learn on the farm Farmer Ray Bower and his family are passionate about educating people about farming and the role it plays in conservation - so much so, that they open the gates to their 600 acre working farm near Penkridge in Staffordshire almost every day of every school holiday throughout the year. Having developed a fun farm attraction as one of numerous farm diversification projects over the past decade, the ethos very much remains on life on a working farm. Visitors have the chance to take an educational yet fun trailer ride around the farm, with Ray or his son Richard explaining all that’s happening on the farm at that time of year. Conservation is serious business at Lower Drayton Farm, and this also features heavily in the farm trailer ride, with explanations of how the farm in managed to actively encourage wild flora and fauna to make it their home. As befits the changing seasons, the fun farm attraction runs different themes throughout the year - from bottle feeding cade lambs in February to learning about baby animals in Spring, through to spooky goings-on at Halloween and even a Santa’s Grotto at Christmas. A Maize Maze during the school summer holidays alongside the farm’s friendly animals, nature trail, woodland walk and adventure playground offer the perfect way to while away long summer days in the great outdoors.

See creatures from before the age of the dinosaurs! Burwarton Show on 2 August is a terrific day out for the family with an exciting host of attractions. Jamie Squibb Freestyle Motorcycle Stunt Team are back by popular demand and new to Burwarton this year is the Inter-Club Scurry Driving Challenge - if you’ve never seen Scurry Driving come and be amazed. New to the show circuit this year is the Hogg Show - rare breed pigs as you’ve never seen them before, as well as sheep shearing, trade stands, a food hall, handicrafts, horticulture, conservation and more. By way of a complete contrast Adabra Giant Tortoises is a unique collection of giant tortoises, child friendly and weighing up to a third of a ton each and rarely seen outside of zoos. They are fascinating to children because of their prehistoric history and the fact that they have literally been around since before the dinosaurs. All the usual attractions are present with heavy emphasis on a traditional agricultural show, local crafts, conservation area with a donkey and petting farm with rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens and donkeys and locally produced food with talks and demonstrations from the Ludlow Food Centre.

From Romans to motor transport Located in the historic centre of Coventry, next to the Cathedral ruins, the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum is the cultural hub of the city. Visit for FREE to immerse yourself and your family in arts, history and culture. With a selection of permanent galleries and temporary exhibition spaces, along with a whole host of ongoing workshops and events, the Herbert offers a great day out. Discover what life was really like in Coventry through the centuries, through personal stories, historical films and our amazing collections. Wander through dazzling interactive displays and investigate the natural world, modern art, and the old masters in our eight permanent galleries. Coventry Transport Museum houses the world’s largest publicly owned collection of British vehicles, and tells the fascinating story of Coventry and its people through the rise and fall of its biggest industry. The museum isn’t just for transport enthusiasts: it’s for storytellers and escapists; speed freaks and thrill seekers; history buffs and culture vultures. It's A.D. 60; the Iceni of East Anglia led by the legendary Boudica have rebelled against Roman rule, and have just been defeated in a terrible battle fought somewhere in the Midlands. As a result the Romans are building a series of fortifications across the Midlands including the The Lunt Roman Fort. Come and explore this partially-reconstructed timber fort. Stand on the ramparts, explore the exhibition about life in a fort in Roman times, try Roman games in the granary and imagine yourself training horses in the gyrus - a feature not found anywhere else in the Roman Empire.
