The 500-year old Knebworth House is opening its 250-acre grounds for the summer event season.

The venue can accommodate everything from corporate barbecues to team-building events, and its catering and events team has unveiled a number of packages, starting with the Summer Party BBQ option at the Cobbold barn and private garden.

They can take part in giant garden games or, during park open times, explore the dinosaur trail, gardens and adventure playground. There are also Summer Fun Day and team-building options.

Jenna Bateman, sales and marketing manager at Knebworth House, commented:  “Knebworth’s extensive grounds absolutely lend themselves to summer entertaining, from summer garden parties to more energetic school-style sports days or It’s A Knockout events.”
