Suffolk looks back to Tudor times in 1970s and 80s

A feast for the eyes and the nose was on offer as Suffolk turned the clock back to Tudor times in the 1970s and 80s.
From making merry with music to putting a whole hog on to roast, towns and villages across Suffolk got into the swing of the 16th century making the most of everything the period had to offer.
Appropriate period attire was required for all of these events; those deemed unsuitably dressed could well have ended up in the stocks, as did some members of the Deben Players in Woodbridge.
Among those attending Suffolk's Tudor events was the notorious King Henry VIII who arrived in Stebbing to great fanfare in 1987.
It's not clear from the pictures which of his many wives was accompanying him on this occasion.

Fortunately it appears there was no axeman ready for them on this occasion, although the same can't be said in Sweffling in 1981.
