About this event
Taking place at Newhouse Farm, site of the original Tywardreath Priory, this three day event will introduce you to the Tudor villagers as they go about their daily life and everyday activities. See how Tudor women foraged for herbs for cooking and medicine, made butter and cheese, cooked over an open fire and baked bread. Watch the Tudor archers practising their skills with authentically hand-made long bows and learn how to spin, weave and make baskets, just as our forefathers did.
There will be regular talks throughout the weekend to share and discover more about the Tudor lifestyle.
Enjoy music, Morris dancing, a close up encounter with hawks and owls and foraging walks.
Browse the heritage crafts stalls; try your hand at something new or forgotten and introduce children to some fun and informative activities and games. There will be pasties, cream teas and a hog roast on Sunday!
