Upcoming Events

  • Worsted Festival 28/29th July

    Saturday, July 28, 2018 to Sunday, July 29, 2018

    We will be making our annual appearance at the lovely Worstead Festival, a great event for the whole family. Worstead is famous for the heavy cloth named after the village, that was woven here in the Middle Ages. An influx of weavers from Flanders in the 12th century led to a burgeoning industry in cloth production, and Worstead owes its prosperity to this industry. The weavers came at the invitation of Edward III, who married Philippa of Hainault, a Flemish princess.

  • Paston Heritage

    Saturday, August 4, 2018 to Sunday, August 5, 2018

    We will be appearing at Mannington Hall as part of the celebration of the 600th anniversary of the Paston family whose letters provided such an intimate view of life in the 15th century.

    We will have our own scribe with us and there is ample opportunity for hands on experience of writning with quill and ink, just like the Pastons. For more information about the Pastons please follow the link below.
