Grundle Farm is a traditional Suffolk farm dating from the 17th century. The farm garden, woodland walk and dell contain ancient timber barns shrouded with creeper and hollyhocks. There are wildlife ponds full of frogs and newts and a waterfall in the spring which all make Grundle Farm a very special place.

It is the perfect setting for a traditional Midsummer Celebration and you will feel that you have stepped back in time to the tranquil golden summers of long ago. Ideal for families, the afternoon will be crammed with many delights: make a garland for your hair, join in the exciting drama workshop that tells the tale of a young hare and his friends, and follow the musicians as they lead the dancing procession through the fragrant hay meadows. Learn how to make your own musical instruments, feast on fabulous cakes and have a go at throwing horseshoes or splatting the rat. Then, as the sun drops in the sky, dance in the Great Barn to the sound of fiddles, melodeons and pipes.
