1pm, 2pm, 3pm : Create your own artwork sessions will allow children to make a collage and paint their own artwork to take home, with foraged items from Upton Country Park. £3 per child

All day : Take part in the art trail in and around the walled garden. Grab a spotter sheet and map to see what artwork you can find.
