Then on to The Romans; will they choose to settle at Kentwell? Of course, a visit to Kentwell would not be complete without our two main time periods! In the Moat House, the Elizabethans will be hard at work in the bakehouse and dairy. Upstairs you will find the stillroom where lotions and potions are made, and the needlewomen working on their latest wall hangings and The Alchemist will be in his hut. And there is so much more to see including 17th Century music and dance. The Victorian Household will be offering an insight in to what life was like in 1869.

Tudor Midsummer Special Event: Saturday 16 June - Sunday 17 June 2018 This is Kentwells biggest, best known and most loved Tudor event of the year. Visitors step back in time to 1538 where our Tudors re-create a whole working, living community. Tudors dress, speak, cook, eat, drink, create music and dance . . . and live life as it was then (this is not a demonstration, it is life lived as it was). Tudors will be in the house - gentry and staff, the Moat House including the dairy, bakehouse and the brewhouse. They will be around the gardens and in the woods. There will be lessons in the school house and the villagers will be going about their daily lives. * speak of anything beyond 1538 and they will no idea of what you are talking about!!
