The sights and sounds of what life would have been like in Tudor times worked its magic to transport scores of visitors back in time at Kentwell Hall in Long Melford.

During the bank holiday weekend, more than 100 actors dressed up in authentic costumes of the period to stage a Tudor re-enactment.

The 16th century manor house became the centrepiece in a Tudor drama with visitors watching actors going about their daily lives cooking, cleaning and working on the estate’s farm, as they would have done more than 500 years ago.

The Tudor period ran from the late 1400s to the early 1600s and was very labour intensive.

Kentwell Hall started its live Tudor events some 30 years ago. Its next event – the Feast of Michaelmas – takes place on the weekend of September 21 and 22.
