Cheeseburn Scupture Garden Open Weekend

Cheeseburn Sculpture Garden are only open for two weekends over the summer and it is really worth a visit. The grounds are beautiful, a stately home, with lots of sculptures around it. It's all outside so probably better on a dry day, but spotting the sculptures made for a great day out for us. A bit of a hidden gem. 

 

Open August 26th/27th/28th orSeptember 2nd/3rd

Scarecrow Festival - Shadforth

Scarecrow Festival - Shadforth

We love the Scarecrow Festival at Shadforth in County Durham - there is a small cost for the clue trail (I think about £2 per family) and you walk around the village using the clues to guess what the scarecrows are representing. In previous years it's been books or sports types. Really good fun - as long as the weather stays dry.
