Traditional crafts will go on display for families at a stately home.

Forty Hall will host demonstrations of traditional crafts such as beekeeping, blacksmithing, basket weaving, leather crafting and woodturning.

The courtyard of the stately home will open on Sunday, July 13 from noon onwards.

Children’s workshops include candle making, creating pencils and willow-weaving.

Councillor Rohini Simbodyal, Enfield Borough Council cabinet member for culture, said: “Forty Hall has a wonderfully rich history and this event will bring it to life.

The craft market is a fantastic way for visitors to buy and sell beautiful hand-crafted gifts, with exciting workshops available for children to get involved in making their own.

“This will be a great day out for families and friends to celebrate and learn more about traditional crafts still being used today."
