Nene Park Trust is holding a Living history re-enactment weekend at medieval Longthorpe Tower, Peterborough on the weekend of the 10th and 11th September.

The Medieval Sokemen Living History Group will be bringing their costumes, props and expert knowledge of this historical period to the Tower to delight and inspire our visitors. When you visit Longthorpe Tower that weekend, not only will you see the stunning Medieval wall paintings, but you will get a flavour of life as it would have been in the 15th century, when the manor house was occupied by the Whittlebury Family.

Our experienced costumed interpreters will share the remarkable story of the house and its décor and explain about daily life in the 1400s. Find out about the food, costume, medicine, arms and armour from members of the Medieval Sokemen Living History Group. You will meet the Lady of the Manor, a soldier, a barber, a surgeon, a cook and other costumed characters.

One-hour tours will be running throughout the weekend of the 10th and 11th September from 10am - 3.30pm and are suitable for all ages and levels of interest.

You can book your tickets here.

We are hoping this weekend will the first of many similar weekends hosted at Longthorpe Tower, bringing its colourful Medieval history to life and inspiring our visitors. Keep your eyes out for future weekend dates.

Please feel free to share this event information further with your contacts and colleagues. I have attached a poster for the event too.

Many thanks and kind regards,
