You can spend the bank holiday weekend with Mary Poppins and Bert at Crook Hall & Gardens.

Mary Poppins will blow in to Crook Hall & Gardens next month for a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious weekend of fun.

Joined by her trusty companion Bert, the pair will spend two days in Durham over the early May bank holiday.

Crook Hall & Gardens will host themed games as Mary settles down with guests for a story.

You can try your hand at chalk drawing with Bert, feed the birds (if you remember your tuppence for a bag) and immerse yourself in all of the movie magic.
