Life during World War One and Two was recreated in Long Melford at the weekend as Kentwell Hall played host to a special event.
The Hall at War took place on Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6, with visitors getting the chance to experience domestic country life during wartime with the help of the venue’s volunteers.
Guests saw the ‘family’ entertaining guests at the hall in 1917, while the nursing VAD representative looked to recruit volunteers.
Visitors also found out about life in the RAF during World War Two, with a squadron on hand to discuss their wartime routine with activities.
The Tudor era was also covered at the event with a longbow archery challenge taking place across the weekend.

“We’re looking forward to more re-enactments, military vehicles and displays next year.”
