A 17th century manor house and gardens near Shipston is opening its gates to the public for the first time in eight years for a special fundraiser.

Compton Scorpion Manor Gardens, in Ilmington, is hosting a vintage tea party on Sunday from 2pm to 5pm for Ebrington Village School Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).

After last year's Vintage Tea Party in Ebrington village hall, the PTFA hope to replicate its success on a bigger scale with the mums once again dressing up as fifties fillies in their roaring Vintage finery as they serve homemade baking.

Tickets are £4 and children go free and all proceeds will go to Ebrington School PTFA .
