Summer of Play at National Trust Seaton Delaval Hall

Vanbrugh Croquet will be on exhibition during the  National Trust Summer of Play season at Seaton Delaval Hall everyday from 24 July until 3 September.

‘Vanbrugh Croquet’ is an outdoor game for all ages which is simple and fun to play. The game involves hitting wooden balls with a mallet through a series of architectural ‘hoops’ that are inspired by Sir John Vanbrugh’s Seaton Delaval Hall architectural models. Vanbrugh Croquet will be located on the lawn where the South East wing of Seaton Delaval Hall stood before being destroyed by the great fire. The layout of the game reimagines this lost architecture in a miniaturised and interactive artwork.
