There will be Croquet on the lawn, Cookery Demonstrations, a selection of Artisan Food Stalls from 'Made In Northamptonshire Suppliers', a Ladybird Hunt with Activity Packs for the children.....and the house, once the largest in England and the Palace and Prison of Charles 1, will be open on Monday with its historic interiors, amazing Music Room and a display of how it was transformed by the BBC for the filming of 'Great Expectations'.
