Gunpowder Plot Day

Gunpowder Plot Day
Discover how the Manor House’s family was involved in the Gunpowder Plot
 
Costumed “Players” will bring the story to life within the various furnished rooms of the house throughout the day.
 
Between the mini plays there will be cannon and musket firing demonstrations in the gardens (We apologise in advance for any disturbance this may cause to some of our neighbours). Ear defenders will be made available to those visitors who wish them as the cannon is loud!
Themed children’s craft activities will take place upstairs for a small extra charge.
 
The Barn Tearoom will be open for light snacks and refreshments
