The wet weather across the Easter weekend did not keep people away from Long Melford’s Kentwell Hall as its first Tudor recreation of the year took place.
Visitors donned wellies and hats to enjoy the historical recreation as well as a range of Easter activities including a children’s egg hunt and hot cross bun-making with the Tudors.
The newborn lambs in the Tudor stables proved particularly popular along with the piglets and baby chicks.
Alix Massey, from Kentwell Hall, said pre-booked and on the day ticket sales were well above last year and the stately home had received some great feedback and reviews.
The next major event at Kentwell Hall is the Tudor May Day celebrations from Saturday, May 5, to Monday, May 7.
