Tudor Christmas

Mistress Carter, the housekeeper, welcomes the group and teaches the children their reverences before Mistress Digby arrives. The children help Mistress Digby prepare the presents and they help Mistress Carter to make their sweet treats before everyone gathers together for the wassail cup ceremony and the mummer’s play performed by the students.

This is a morning session only and it costs £8.50 per pupil

Please note after the morning activities the school group can have their lunch in the barn and play in the maze and gardens. Members of the public are not allowed onsite while there are schools visits and we only book one school group in at any one time.

NB: this session can also be Stuart themed
