Weekend Picks: The Clumber Park Fairy Tale Quest

Nottinghamshire: Clumber Park, Worksop, 10am- 4pm

Clumber House, once stood in ancient Sherwood Forest and was constructed using only the finest materials from across the world.

It boasted a grand entrance hall, with a three-flight marble staircase. Sadly the mediaeval mansion, owned by the Dukes of Newcastle, suffered two fires in 1879 and 1912, before it was demolished in 1938.

But now, nearly 80 years later, the people in charge at Clumber Park, need some help!' They say:

“We all know the grounds of this great country park were once home to a beautiful castle, and a noble Dragon Lord, but now we are on a mission to find him once again, and we need the Knights of Nottinghamshire (The ones who aren't scared of the dark) to help us”

– Clumber Park.

This weekend you can discover the ‘Pleasure Grounds’ and collect your enchanted map from the Discovery Centre to help find and save the Dragon Lord. Collect the magical charms along the way as you set out on your adventure.
