Normanby Hall Country Park is celebrating the start of the 2012 open season by holding a free open day on Sunday 1 April.
The open day gives visitors the perfect opportunity to experience everything Normanby Hall Country Park has to offer for free.
It will be the first chance for people to see the new Stories Through Suitcases exhibition in the costume gallery, which is showcasing costumes from North Lincolnshire’s many cultures.
People can also visit the Farming Museum to see this year’s temporary exhibition that tells the potted history of Elswick Hopper Cycle Co. Ltd, Barton and the story of North Lincolnshire’s greatest and only Olympic medal winner, Albert ‘Lal’ White.
You will also be able to learn about what events are planned for the upcoming months, and learn about the new Tots' Time and Reminiscence sessions that will be taking place in the Farming Museum.
The free open day is the ideal opportunity for people to buy a season ticket in the Gift Shop and they will be able to enjoy the park for a whole year.
A season ticket is fantastic value with all Normanby Hall has to offer. A family season ticket is £20, a season ticket for two people is £16 and a season ticket for one person is £12.50. There is an early bird discount of £1 off all season tickets until 31 May 2012.
Set in the heart of undiscovered North Lincolnshire, the 300 acres of Normanby Hall Country Park provides the perfect day out for all the family.

Cllr David Robinson, lead member for Asset and Estate Management, Sport, Leisure and Culture, said:
“I would encourage people to visit Normanby Hall Country Park as it is a brilliant place for everyone. There is a wide range of activities to take part in and the season ticket offers superb value for money.
“It is also the ideal place for a short break over the summer holidays. The caravan site is set in a beautifully secluded location at the south end of the park with 60 pitches; it is ideal for a caravan or motor home rallies. In addition, there is also a five-van touring site that is available for individual bookings throughout the open season.”
Notes for editors
Stories Through Suitcases is an intergenerational project focusing on the stories of migrant workers that moved to North Lincolnshire over the last 50 to 60 years.
The project will coincide with the Precious Cargo project that the Museum is a local delivery partner. This is a project led by young people inspired by Yorkshires world collections. It is part of Stories of the World, a project at the heart of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
