“Winning this award is the perfect ending to “A year in Percy’s Park’. We’ve welcomed thousands of families and children from across the region over the year, to engage with Nick Butterworth’s well-loved tales featuring Percy and his animal friends. We knew the family trails across the estate would be a perfect fit for Tatton Park and our visitors and we received great feedback. It was brilliant to be able to encourage families and friends to meet up, venture outdoors once again, to appreciate nature and play in our special places.”
