If you go down to Sunnycroft today sure of a big surprise…
Head down to Sunnycroft, Wellington this weekend (Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August between 11am and 3pm) for the Teddy Bear’s picnic on the lawn in front of the beautiful Edwardian home.
Bring along a picnic and don’t forget to bring along your favourite teddy bear. You and your bear can join in the fun and games on the lawn. There will be craft activities, a variety of games and story-telling at set intervals throughout the day. There will also be a bear trail through the house and for the more adventurous you may like to explore the garden and orchard too.
Back in the early 1900s Joan Lander, a former owner of Sunnycroft, and her sister Rachel enjoyed picnics on the lawn with her sister and her favourite bear. Help us recreate this event this weekend.
The event runs from 11am to 3pm, with Sunnycroft being open until 5pm.
Normal admission charges apply to Sunnycroft, with National Trust members and under 5s gaining free entry.
Sunnycroft is one of Shropshire’s National Trust gems, tucked away from the bustle of Holyhead Road in suburban Wellington. It encapsulates a way of life that was at the heart of British Society at the height of the Empire. At one time there were tens and thousands of similar properties and now almost all have been demolished or converted. Sunnycroft remains largely intact and is full of original features and much of its original contents which will transport you back in time.
