Kentwell is the originator of historical live events for schools in the UK and have been doing so for over 30 years. 2015’s re-enactment will be set in the year 1588, when Queen Elizabeth was on the throne and under threat from the Spanish Armada.
Tudor re-enactors re-create life on a grand scale: the entire historic house and estate are transformed into a 16th Century Manor, with up to 150 inhabitants of all ages, skills and wealth carrying out a huge variety of daily tasks.
The reenactment is as historically accurate as possible and is covers aspects of KS1 and KS2 national curriculum. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday are “set route” visit days and are the best option for younger children or those (schools) who have not been before.
Wednesday and Fridays are best for older children, small or very large groups or schools who have been before.
Friday 19 June is also a home-educator day from 1pm.
All of the re-enactors are stay in character throughout the day.
Kentwell make a “cheat sheet” of costume instructions available to attendees, once they have booked.
Pricing is dependent on arrival time and group size. There is much to occupy an entire day.
The school booking information is at: http://www.schools.kentwell.co.uk/booking-and-pricing
(Home educators have a different booking process, similar to their public events)
