Step back in time and see what it was like to work in the gardens at the end of the First World War as Harewood House presents a new immersive exhibition…
Harewood House has fired up its time machine for a brand new open-air exhibition. Seeds of Hope will take you back to 1918, at the end of the First World War, and show you what it was like to work in a wartime garden. Self-sufficiency was essential back then, so they’ve transformed the space into a mini-farm with heritage fruit, vegetables and flowers alongside a few living residents – how would you like to meet their goats and chickens?
This marvellous transformation has been designed in partnership with Lord Whitney, a Leeds-based creative agency famed for creating unique, immersive experiences, so it’s much more than just an exhibition. But it’s only here for a limited time, so if you want to see it, head over to Harewood House between Saturday 30th June and Sunday 4th November 2018. And of course, enter our competition to win tickets!
Round up the kids and take the whole family on a marvellous day out
This is the perfect summer day out. If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll bag a family ticket to Harewood House for two adults and three kids, so you can go to Seeds of Hope. While you’re there, you can explore the house and grounds, visit the farm, take the ferry across the lake and see their famous penguins. The kids will love the adventure playground (and between us, it’s a great way to wear them out ready for bedtime).
Wait, there’s more. Make a pitstop at the Harewood Horse Box, where they’ll be serving traditional cream teas. Not only can you enjoy a scone with clotted cream and jam, but you can also try their special Harewood gin and tonic (or a glass of prosecco if you’d prefer). The kids can have their favourite soft drinks and help you choose a packet of special edition seeds from the Walled Garden to take home.
