Get on board for lots of fun

ONE of the county’s main tourist attractions will be keeping children busy over the summer holidays.

A non-stop programme of activities and hands-on history are taking place at Belsay Hall – from the pirate trail to the highwayman assault course.

Among other things, children can enjoy a sword and cutlass drill, storytelling and craft sessions from the Georgian and Regency period.

The activities are running until August 26. For more information about them and entry prices, telephone 01661 881636.
