The Summer of Fun is back at Sewerby Hall and Gardens for the summer holidays, with a packed programme of fun events and activities right through until early September.

The highlight will once again be Yorkshire Day on Monday, 1 August, with the traditional celebrations, including the Chairman of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Councillor John Whittle, reading the Proclamation at 11.47am, and a chance to take part in Yorkshire Pudding and spoon races; make a Yorkshire flag; listen to local music by The Assembly Line in The Orangery; watch the Makara Morris Dancers; and take part in a Rusticus Encounter with the charismatic Pirate Captain. There will also be Morris dancing, and flat cap flinging, and in the Edwardian kitchen there will be some recipes from the archive to take home.
