Events & Volunteer Days
Easter Sunday - 4th April
With the lockdown rules for England easing on the 28th March, we are planning on opening the grounds on Easter Sunday. The daffodils are now coming out and we hope they are still there at Easter. Visitors will be welcome to roam the grounds.
In line with government guidelines, we encourage people to ‘stay local’ and as such, please only book and attend this event if you live local to Bank Hall.
Please only attend with a group size / makeup that you are permitted to do so under law. To check the latest government guidelines see https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Hand sanitising stations will be available and Social distancing rules will apply, preferably masks should also be worn.
There will be no Refreshments, Stalls or Activities at this event. Toilet facilities will be avaialble.
Visitors must book in advance for this event via Eventbrite and pay on line. Admission will be £2.00 (plus booking fees) per Adult.
Entry will be in limited numbers per every half hour, with first admission being 11:00am and last admission will be at 3:30pm (Grounds to close at 4:00pm). Entry for children under 16 is free but they must also be pre-booked on the Eventbrite site. The link for Evenbrite is:
Please also note it will not be possible to enter the building or view in close proximity. The area around the Hall remains a construction site with no access to visitors. This event is to enable visitors to access the grounds surrounding the Hall.
We reserve the right to cancel / change this event at short notice, in particular should any change to government guidelines require us to do so. PLEASE CHECK our Facebook page and website for any changes.
