Due to the great success of this event last week we are giving another opportunity for participation in this Art and Craft activity for children ‘Make your own Coole House’.

Sunday 14th August from 3pm – 4.30pm.

The beautiful old house may no longer be standing in Coole Park but here is your opportunity to construct your own version from card using a Coole House Kit. With the original house as a starting point invent your own interior and decorate the exterior in any style you like. For children 8 years upwards. All materials supplied free of charge.
