The longest running and best example of Tudor Living History and crafts, where over 300 volunteers re-enact Tudor life each summer. Visitors are welcome to step back in time and visit to see life as it was in Tudor times.
We are members of Tabulae – an on-line listing of professional demonstrators, interpreters, entertainers, makers and suppliers, serving the heritage and education industries. If you are looking for other people to work at an event – Tabulae provides a short cut to the best!
Jack Greene – Alchemist and Tudor Traveller for school visits & events. Jack has recently created artefacts for several film projects including ‘The Luttrell Psalter’ and ‘The Lady of Shallot’. He is unique – an entertainer, educator and kiln builder, potter, spinning wheel maker and one of the most versatile re-enactors.
They make beautiful, soft, easy to wear hand made shoes which they research with exacting historical accuracy.
