‌Saturday 10th - Sunday 25th February

Most 17th century soldiers were men but a few courageous women risked it all, donned men’s clothes and took to the battlefield.  Meet a gallant she-soldier and hear why she went to war for love. You can also plant a potted potion to help friendship grow and create a love token inspired by our collection.
