Two events at local National Trust properties will enable campers to get closer to nature. The popular Attingham Camp takes place once again at Attingham Park on Saturday 25 May, and guests will stay in the Field of Play overnight, cosying up to a bonfire and sleeping under the stars. There will be a range of family activities as well as marshmallows round the campfire. Advance booking is essential, with adults costing £30, children aged 2 to 16 £15 and under 2s £5.
