Vintage sports day at Rainham Hall

Aug 3rd to Aug 17th Rainham Hall

Join us this summer for a fantastic day of family fun! Our Vintage Sports Day will feature the classic egg and spoon race, sack race, bean bag throwing, three legged race and relay race. Our games are inspired by our current exhibition about the 1940s-1950s history of the Hall when the building was used as a nursery for local children.

Tickets: £3 per child. Suitable for children aged 7 to 12 years old. Dates and times: Friday 3 and Friday 17 August 2018, 11am-12pm.
