New events at Sewerby Hall and Gardens are being launched in June. Museum Mondays on the first Monday of the month will be followed by Inside Out events on the second Monday.
Museum Mondays will be illustrated talks or handling sessions linked to the Hall, the museum or its collections. The first event, on Monday, 3 June, in the Orangery from 1.30pm to 3pm, will be about ‘Battlefield Butlers’, the unusual story of soldier servants of World War One.

Inside Out events will be a chance to explore the gardens and grounds of Sewerby Hall. It will feature walks, talks and also handling sessions linked to the natural world and landscape.
The first event, on Monday, 10 June, will be a Guided Walk – ‘The Footsteps of the Estate Workers’. It will be a gentle stroll around the grounds to find out more about the life and work of the estate workers. Meet at the Orangery at 1.30pm.
