Details

Kentwell’s Tudor Midsummer Re-creation takes you back through the “time tunnel” and transports you into Tudor England 1588.

The Kentwell estate is transformed to re-create a complete living, working, surviving Tudor community.

With over 200 Tudors on-site you can immerse yourself into their world as they go about their daily lives.

This event is not a demonstration but ‘live’ as you watch and join in with food preparation, dance, music, crafts and activities.

Front Lawns: militia, players & limners
Moat House: inc diary, bakery, brewhouse & stillroom
