The venue sits just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park, at the foot of Ingleborough hill. The area is home to many of the most famous caves in England, including the Ingleborough Show Cave.
The Hall itself dates to 1847 when the Farrer family of London owned it. They used it as a hunting lodge and country home. The Grade 2 listed building includes an icehouse, underground tunnel and eight acres of rich woodlands and formal gardens.

The workshop uses examples of Piet Mondrain’s artwork and other artworks to introduce children to shapes and colour. Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter who was born in 1872. At one time, Mondrian painted realistic landscapes, but as he painted more and more, his style began to change. Eventually, Mondrian’s style consisted of geometric shapes and primary colours. After all, every shape can be created from the basic geometric shapes and every colour can be created from the primaries – red, yellow and blue.
