A garden explorers session will take place on Monday, 20 January, where participants can enjoy garden-themed toys and join Sewerby Hall and Gardens staff in learning about the Monkey Puzzle trees in the gardens.
The last session, on Monday 27 January, will throw an Edwardian tea party where participants can come and share role play tea, coffee, cakes, biscuits and fruit with friends.
