If cabin fever is starting to set in among your kids this summer, Powis Castle says it can help!
Powis Castle has created a series of events that will run until the end of the summer holidays in a bid to help parents cure their children’s ‘cabin fever’.
As the holidays reach the midway stage, the Castle’s Manic Mondays have been tailored to keep kids occupied with a healthy dose of outdoor fun.
The events have already been launched with scores of children dressing up as knights and princesses, frolicking in the labyrinth and making their own crowns.
Alison Dyer of the castle said: “We’ve got loads in store for the holidays, from fairytale picnics to digital photography workshops and Welsh language story afternoons.
“When the sun shines and your kids have energy to spare, we create hula hoop and skipping competitions across the labyrinth, which at over half a mile can keep even the most energetic athlete busy!
“For those in more creative moods, the Orangery can host crafty crown making, face painting and storytelling. All these activities are framed by our exquisite lawns and terraces.”
This Monday’s event also includes an opportunity for children from 7–16 to learn the art of digital photography from the professionals. To find out more, contact the castle on 01938 551929 or visit
