Petworth House open day deemed a 'great success'

Petworth House hosted a free open day to celebrate 75 years as a National Trust property.

On Sunday, June 12 visitors were able to enjoy games on the lawn, music from Emsworth Concert Band, We the People exhibition and archaeology digs.

Sarah Taylor, senior programming and partnerships officer at Petworth House and Park says: “Our celebration Sunday was a great success, it was such a pleasure to see the house and garden filled with happy visitors enjoying the Emsworth concert band, being inspired to create their own art work and bouncing around on space hoppers.
