Visitors to Kentwell Hall were given a glimpse into Tudor life at the weekend as volunteers re-enacted 16th century Easter traditions.

The annual Eastertide event proved as popular as ever this year with the return of the impossible quiz, a children’s Easter egg hunt and many other activities enjoyed by the whole family.

As well as the Easter activities, adults and children explored the manor, which was filled with more than 100 Tudors going about their daily tasks as if it was 1535.

With the warm spring weather appearing on Monday, around 1,000 visitors turned out to celebrate the bank holiday at the Long Melford attraction.

Owner Patrick Phillips said the Eastertide event, which has been running for around the last 20 years, continues to be a success.

“Overall, we were quite pleased,” he said. “It is the weather that determines it.

“As the weather improved, so did our numbers.”
