Our Tudor days are unrivalled in scale, visitors immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of the 16th Century. Kentwell is the originator of historical live Tudor events starting over 30 years ago. What we offer is still the biggest, most comprehensive, and most authentic Tudor experience you will get anywhere. We re-create life on a community scale, our entire historic house and estate are transformed into a 16th Century Manor, with up to 250 inhabitants of all ages, skills and wealth carrying out a huge variety of daily tasks.
Jolie Booth has worked as a Tudor every summer for over 26 years, making her somewhat of a specialist. Working as a dairymaid for her formative years, she went on to become a washerwoman and then a low-player. Ten years ago she set up the Mummers station and has been head of station ever since. This troupe, known as the Suffolk Howlers, perform their plays upon a cart and sleep beneath it under the stars.
