Saturday 20 July – Sunday 1 September 2024

Join us for a summer of creative play with our brand new Playscape, created by the wonderful team at Wild Rumpus. Running throughout the summer holidays, you are invited to join our World of Play.

With over 100 acres of gardens to explore, Harewood House is the perfect place to create lasting family memories. Built in the 18th century, it’s one of England’s Treasure Houses and home to an impressive collection of art from across the world.

This summer, let your children’s imaginations run wild with our new pop-up loose parts play installation. Return again and again to see what new stories and games they can imagine with the loose play elements on each visit.


Join us on Sat 20 + Sun 21 July as we celebrate the start of Summer!

We will be joined by the Wild Rumpus Team, and the wonderful Raggle Taggle Arts for a weekend full of play, folk theatre performances, and a one man band – alongside our new Playscape installation, and a giant Marble Run to play throughout the weekend.
