Open Season at Kelmarsh Hall

Kelmarsh Hall have opened the doors to the new Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) ‘Below Stairs’ project, starting off their open season.  This new area opens a previously unseen area to visitors, showing what life was like for those living and working at Kelmarsh Hall.  The inclusion of smells, sounds and activities allows for a full sensory experience, alongside new technologies, which bring a diverse attraction to the Hall. 

The new HLF project also includes a Kelmarsh App, which visitors can download beforehand, including a timeline of the families living ‘above stairs’, and interactive games.  The new area is open with the fine rooms upstairs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays, from 11am to 5pm.
