Things to do this half-term by Samuel the spaniel

Come and join me, Samuel the spaniel, at Petworth House and Park this half-term - there’s loads to see and do! I’ve been busy trying my paw at some finger puppets, dressing up and playing games in the house, and working my way through the '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4' in the park.

Petworth Puppet Theatre

Try your hand at being a star with our Petworth Puppet Theatre workshops. We'll supply all the materials for you to make your very own little puppets, with a chance to put on a great show at the end of the session! I do hope someone makes a spaniel puppet. The Puppet theatre will be running on Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 May. Let me know if you're coming - book a place by clicking here

In the Park... 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4!

Time to start ticking off those 50 things. I've made a list of my favourite five to do here in the Park and Pleasure Grounds - click here to read them and find out more.

In the Pleasure Grounds... Find some woodland friends

I’ve asked my friends to stay well hidden, so don’t expect this to be easy! They are all in the Pleasure Grounds somewhere. Check the bushes, look down low on the ground, and look up high in the trees… you may come across a fox, a woodpecker, an owl, and a rabbit, although I have even more friends coming to visit me in the summer holidays…

In the House... Spot the spaniel

There are 8 little spaniels hidden around the house, see if you can spot them all! You even get an amazing sticker with me on it once you've spotted them all. Petworth House is open from Saturday to Wednesday.

In the House... Treasure chests

Miniature rooms, dressing up outfits, giant jigsaws, and.... Well, I won't give away all our secrets, but nearly every room in the house contains a box filled with exciting activities based around the history of the room and it's objects. Remember the house is closed on Thursdays and Fridays. Let me know which treasure chest is your favourite and I might even reveal my favourite.

I hope I've given you some half-term inspiration, have a great week all!
