The Tudor Hands-on event started on Sunday, August 20, with daily life from the 16th-century recreated as well as the opportunity for people to get involved.

More than 40 family activities, including butter making, kneading the dough, spinning wool, and helping the potters are available, as well as Tudor music and dancing.

There will also be Tudor activity in the dairy, bakehouse, stillroom and needle room in the Moat House.

The activities will go ahead regardless of the weather and the hall is open from 11am-5pm.

More than ten acres of the hall’s gardens will also be open as will the house as part of the event, and lunches, teas and snacks will be served in the Stableyard area.
