Tudor Midsummer at Kentwell
Great Annual Re-Creation of Tudor Life
Long Melford (county of Suffolk)
Kentwell Hall is situated in Long Melford, Suffolk, and includes the hall, outbuildings, rare breeds farm and gardens. Most of the current building facade dates from the mid 16th century, but the origins of Kentwell are much earlier, dating back to the 11th century.
Every year in early summer Kentwell Hall invites the public to experience the life of the 16th century during the series of historical re-creations and celebrations called Tudor Days. On several weekends in summer different event take place, dedicated to the traditional feasts, fairs and daily life of a certain year of the Tudor period (1485-1603). The Tudor year represented at the events varies each year. For Tudor Days the entire historic house and estate are transformed into a 16th century Manor, with hundreds of inhabitants of all ages, skills and wealth carrying out a huge variety of daily tasks.
Kentwell's Great Annual Re-Creation of Tudor Life is the highlight of the whole period of Tudor Days. A whole range of activities of those working on the Manor is re-created in the Gardens, Grounds, Stables and Farm. Various displays and deep immersion into the past make the festival the largest Tudor Re-Creation in England, and perhaps in all the world.
