Immerse yourself in 16th Century life at Kentwell Hall’s biggest Tudor event of the year

11am – 5pm (house closes at 4pm) | 12 – 20 August 2023

Get lost in the sights, sounds, and smells of the 16th Century, at Kentwell Hall where you can meet a whole community going about their everyday life, as if you have really travelled back in time to 1564.

Expect soldiers, surgeons, merchants, and silk workers on the front lawn. Head inside and meet cooks, housekeepers, washerwomen, gentry, and minstrels in the house. You can join in with brewing, and butter, cheese, and bread making in The Pavilion. Make lotions, potions, and remedies in the still room and meet taverners and painters in the alehouse. There is also a chance to meet animals in the stables!
