Colour and creativity at The Workhouse this Autumn

Autumn at The Workhouse, Southwell, brings a splash of colour to the gardens as squash and pumpkins ripen and the ancient Bramley apple trees start to bear fruit. Celebrate the season of plenty at the National Trust property with half term trails and Hallowe’en crafts.

There’s something to interest everyone this autumn starting on Saturday 21 October when we join the Southwell Bramley Festival to celebrate this famous local variety with storytelling, apple tours and folk and Morris dancing performances. Why not have a go at creating the longest apple peel?

Younger visitors can get ready for Hallowe’en by getting hands-on at the popular Spooky Critters Craft event on Wednesday 25 October. During half term week Saturday 21 - Sunday 29 October they can also seek out the darkest corners of The Workhouse on a special children’s trail. Look out for some unexpected surprises in the cellars and tell us what you think.
