From 19th to 22nd April, make ‘rubbish’ music at Leeds Castle in Kent!
Join the Junk Orchestra on the Pavilion Lawn this Easter for daily musical ‘jamming sessions’. Create and play with instruments that have been cleverly constructed using bits of old rubbish. Founded by former STOMP member Saul Eisenberg, the Junk Orchestra use a super-sonic recycled collection of objects to create fun and fabulous music for the whole family to enjoy.
Families can even bring along some of their own litter and add it to an incredible sculpture created by award winning eco-artist Sarah Turner, which will also be displayed on the Pavilion Lawn.
Families can also give their creative skills free reign at the Castle’s ‘mad hat’ making workshop! From colourful Bunny Ears to floral spring headbands, have a go at creating a fun and funky Easter hat using card, paint and glitter.
Celebrating its 900th anniversary in 2019, Leeds Castle will be hosting a number of other special events and activities throughout the year. Admission tickets are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase and include access to many family friendly events including Motors by the Moat, the Medieval Jousting Tournament in May, and the magnificent Carnival of History in July in partnership with the Arts Council.
