Denny Abbey and Farmland Museum are stepping back in time to the Tudor period this bank holiday weekend.

The event which takes place on Sunday 30 and Monday 31 August from 10.30am to 5pm each day aims to educate people about how the Tudors went about their everyday lives.

Ann Wise, museum manager, joked that this will be the first time since Henry VIII closed the Abbey that there have been so many Tudors on site.

“Members of The Tudor Group will be making their first ever visit to Denny.

“They will be sharing their love and knowledge of the Tudor period and showing how people lived, dressed, ate and worked the land.”

There will also be an opportunity for people to have a go at threshing, ropemaking, lipwork, straw plaiting, winnowing and to discover what horses ate during that time.
