Longthorpe Tower Living History Event

3rd December, 2022 - 4th December, 2022

See Longthorpe Tower brought to life at our living history re-enactment weekend with the Medieval Sokemen Living History Group.  One hour tours will be running on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December.
Visit the Medieval residence at Longthorpe Tower to not only see the stunning wall paintings, but to experience life as it would have been in the 15th century, when the manor was occupied by the Whittlebury family.

Experienced costumed interpreters will share the remarkable story of the house and its décor and explain about daily life in the 1400s. Find out about the food, costume, medicine, arms and armour and there will also be the opportunity to find out more about how Christmas was celebrated 500 years ago. Meet the Lady of the Manor, a soldier, a barber, a surgeon, a cook and other costumed characters.

The one-hour tours must be booked in advance and are suitable for all ages and levels of interest.
