Kentwell Hall Through the Ages’ Special Event

26th May 2018 at 11:00 am to 31st May 2018 at 4:00 pm


From a Neolithic camp to the twentieth century (with a few historical surprises along the way), this is a fantastic event for all the family!

This is a wonderful journey starting with the The Neolithics, you never know what you might find in the woods – a shaman, some hunters and some crafts in our earliest re-created period yet!

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.

The list of activities go on and on including:

WWI – the Home Front
The 1920s
WWII – with the Home Guard, the War time kitchen & the WVS ladies
The 1960s
The 1970s
The Punks

All of the above activities run throughout each day.

Delve deeper into the history with our ‘Twangs to Bangs – Weapons through the Centuries’ demonstration and a multi-period ‘Fashion Through the Ages’ Show.

Kids – Explore our colourful ‘Rats through the Ages’ Trail!

Visit all our time periods and search out our friendly little rats with colourful tails!

The house and gardens with its wild flower meadows in full bloom and rare breeds farm will be open.
