  • Knife Forging Workshop with Mark Constable

    Knife Forging Workshop with Mark Constable

    This knife-making course is more akin to silversmithing than blacksmithing, using light hammers and finesse rather than brute force.   During the day you will design, hand forge, heat treat (harden and temper), make and rivet on a wooden handle before honing the knife to razor sharpness.  Whether you chose to make a fruit knife, small kitchen prep knife or a replica Saxon eating knife the choice is yours, what you will take home is totally unique hand made with a personality all of its own, a rustic and almost historic looking piece.  An important aspect of the course will be using the very simple bucket forge, improvised anvils and some basic tooling allowing you to replicate this simple, cheap and compact set up if you decide that knife making might be a new hobby for you.  No previous experience is required.

  • Picnic Cinema: Withnail and I

    Picnic Cinema: Withnail and I

    For the sixth year in a row we are extremely privileged to be able to offer what is the most amazing opportunity to watch the UK’s No.1 cult film Withnail & I (15) at the remote location where it was filmed.  CAMPING ONLY. You can not leave the site after the film (why would you want to?!) because the site is extremely remote, across two farmers’ land, meaning we have to MAKE CAMPING COMPULSORY!!!! Which also means we all have a jolly good time.  For those who haven’t done it before, you arrive at 5.30pm, pitch tents, eat something (we provide you with a tasty meal), drink something (there is a bar on site), play games, watch film, have a boogie, stagger around trying to find your tent….

  • The Bug Chase

    The Bug Chase

    Bugs, ladybirds, butterflies and bees – Lowther Castle this summer holidays will be all about insects: their habitats, their ways, their general creepy-crawliness.  Top billing goes to the Bug Chase, a trail throughout the gardens that will teach bughunters, young and old, about an array of insects. Do bees run? Can ants talk? Why do ladybirds have spots? Trail followers will hop from one insect colony to the next, learning and exploring as they go.  Alongside the bonanza bug trail, Lowther Castle will be offering a trail-inspired menu in the courtyard café (think Toad-in-the-Hole and Squashed Fly biscuits).
