1 August was known as Lammas and it was an important milestone in the Tudor year.
During our Lammastide festival, from 1 August to 9 August visitors will be able to try their hands at plaiting dough for the Harvest Loaf, decorate our cartwheel and help our Tudor gentlewomen with some ‘strewing’ as Lammas was the time to refresh the covering of straw, rushes and herbs which originally formed the floor of the Great Hall. Another important task for Tudor children was to scare birds off the all-important crops so come and make a bird puppet to flap around our wicker scare crow.
Find out how the hall was built
Our old exhibition about how the hall was built was in need of an update!
The new displays have now been installed around the hall and we'd love to hear what you think. Please email us or fill in a comment card during your visit.
