Fun and rain at the Home Front weekend

As part of Hever Castle's Home Front weekend on 25/26 June, the museum volunteers laid on an exciting programme of activities for the public, which complemented the events laid on by Hever Castle. The frequent rain showers were a challenge, but never dampened the party spirit.
