Get a taste of the Tudor times at Abington Park Museum

Published: Friday, 12 August 2016

Transport yourself back in time and experience a fun-packed day of themed activities from the Tudor period.

Activities will span the inside and outside of Abington Park Museum with plenty of fun, interesting and intriguing things to do including archery, falconry, craft activities and a food workshop to name but a few.

There’ll also be theatrical performances, storytelling and a variety of food options including a hog roast from Spitting Pig Catering.

Councillor Anna King, Cabinet Member for Community Engagement, said:

“Northampton has a long and rich history and - despite a couple of setbacks due to plagues and fires - was an important and thriving town back in Tudor times.

“This event gives people a chance to experience some part of what it was like to live during those times and to find out about what people wore, what they ate and what skills they used to help hunt, trade and survive.

“It really was a fascinating period in British history and there will be a whole lot to do and learn at this event, so I encourage people to come along and enjoy the experience.”

The event will run from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 20 August.

Entry to the event is free; however some activities will attract a small fee.
