A chance to learn at Butler School at Sewerby Hall and Gardens!

Fridays at Sewerby Hall and Gardens during the summer holidays mean a chance to attend Butler School.

The special school is at 11.30am and 2pm each Friday and will let children find out if they have got what it takes to be a butler.

Children can join the Butler at Sewerby Hall and Gardens to learn a bit more about the servants who worked there in Edwardian times and to have a go at some of their jobs around the house and in the Orangery.

Education officer Robert Chester said : “Butler School is new for 2019, and is already proving popular. It’s a great chance for children and families to learn a lot more about life above and below stairs in the country house – and to test their skills!!”

The Butler School sessions are suitable for 3-10 years olds. There is limited availability, so book in advance via the Welcome Centre on (01262) 673769.

There is also an exhibition in the house called ‘Belonging to the Household’ which celebrates the Edwardian servants, and the household of Sewerby Hall in particular.
