Wicked Wednesdays, Killerton

https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/killerton/whats-on/wicked-wednesdays


We love our Wicked Wednesdays at Killerton! They have become a real feature of our summer holidays over the last couple of years and my children look forward to them immensely.  As members living very near by, we visit the Killerton estate frequently, and always have a great time, but Wicked Wednesdays really add something special.


Held each week in August, these afternoons are based around a different topic, story or theme such as Bear Hunt, Pirates, Wizards and Witches – this week’s was Damsels, Dragons and Knights. An additional £3 charge is made per child. There is usually a trail or quiz or set activities that the children need to take part in to gather clues that they can then use to participate in a show at the end – a magic word or the missing part of a song.

There are also usually craft activities, garden games and face painting on the main lawn of the house.


Once the children have solved the clued or guessed the word, they can claim a prize – much excitement!

The afternoon always end with a show which ties together all the elements of the session and usually allows for audience participation and general fun. The children absolutely love it!


There are snacks and drinks available from the Killerton cafes – including the new Dairy Cafe which has stunning views from it’s outdoor seating area. Toilets are nearby, and there are acres of space to sit and eat your own picnic.
