A fantastic display of 17th century life will fill the National Civil War Centre on Sunday 10th December. Throughout the museum there will be demonstrations of period trades and traditions
from lace making to a blacksmith and his tools, a medicinal herbalist, a wood turner and more,
and, outside in the courtyard, you can meet a sword master in a mall arena.
In the Tudor Hall, a table will be authentically set out for a meal just as it would be in the 1600s
and, at 1pm, visitors are invited to attend a fascinating talk on contemporary food and eating etiquette.
The day's activity will also spill out into the nearby market place; a recruiting party of re-enactors
will be sent out at 11am and at 2pm there will be a thrilling drill display.
Events in the museum are free with standard admission.
