Tudor May Day Celebrations

Tudor May Day Celebrations

Details

May Day was the most popular holiday in Tudor times with lots of merrymaking. It is also one of our most popular events of the year, expect processions, plays and pageantry with lots of music and dancing.

At Kentwell, we hold traditional May Day celebrations - music, dancing, plays and processions with over 100 of our costumed 'Tudors'. We have a host of activities for families to join in with - don't just visit, be part of the event.

Tudor May Day Celebrations - 100 Tudors about the manor, under cover and in the grounds, celebrating May Day in Tudor-style.

House Open - view the Hall (some rooms downstairs will contain Tudors!).

Gardens Open - spring bulbs and blossom festoon over 10 acres of garden, moats, ponds and woodland. Breathtaking.

Family Fun Trails – join the Storybook Trail in the Gardens and the Heffalump Hunt down on the Farm.

On the Farm - this year's lambs, chicks and piglets join the sheep, cows, pigs, goats and horses.

All of our activities will go on, whatever the weather, and your visit can certainly fill a whole day. Come early and stay for the day, there is so much to see and do - a visit to a Kentwell event really is a whole Day Out!

We'll also be serving delicious lunches, teas and snacks in our Stableyard area.
