Kentwell Michaelmas - Saturday 22nd September 2018

Another season of club events started with a welcome return to Kentwell Hall providing a chance to catch up with their amazing Tudors.  They certainly paint a very vivid picture of what life must have been like in the 16th century.  In character all the time and full of fascinating facts about local and national history.
We watched food preparation both in the Hall's kitchen for the Gentry and outside for the Estate workers before enjoying our own excellent lunch in the cafe.
