General News > Shake Off The Winter Blues At The Bowes Museum Spring Market
Shake off those winter blues and celebrate the great outdoors with a visit to the Spring Market at The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle on Sunday 14 April.
This free event, which takes place in the Museum grounds from 10.00 – 4.00, will feature specialist horticultural traders offering a wide range of plants - including bonsai, grasses and herbs - alongside inspirational accessories for the garden, delicious local food and crafts.
Children’s activities will be on offer inside the Museum from 10.30 – 3.00, with the theme ‘Love Your Local Landscape’ taking inspiration from the current exhibition, Rokeby: Poetry & Landscape; Walter Scott & Turner in Teesdale, which runs until 28 April. There is no charge for the activities, but children must be accompanied by an adult, for whom normal museum admission applies.
Or why not take the opportunity to blow away the cobwebs by joining an afternoon walk to nearby Egglestone Abbey, exploring the landscape that inspired Sir Walter Scott and the acclaimed landscape artist Turner? The walk, which costs £5.00, leaves the Museum at 1.00pm the same day. Those wishing to take part must book by calling 01833 690606 and are advised to wear appropriate footwear and clothing.
Rosie Bradford, the Museum’s Groups and Events Coordinator, said: “This is an ideal day out, with something for all the family going on throughout the day.”
