Come and live as a Tudor! | Kentwell Hall

Come and live as a Tudor!

Volunteers of all ages are needed each year to re-create everyday domestic Tudor life both during the Great Annual Re-Creation and on selected weekends during the summer season.

Each summer we recruit some 700 people of all ages to take part in Kentwell's Great Annual Re-Creation of Tudor Life which runs for in late June.

Do I need Tudor skills?

No Tudor skills are necessary, although we hope those taking part will in time acquire some such and there is ample opportunity to learn.

Enthusiasm, commitment and staying power are initially more vital.

How to apply

If you would like to know more, we send out full details of what is involved to potential new participants each year in January & February. From this anyone interested can decide whether or not to apply. Applicants may write in at any time to the address below. Although you may not hear from us until the following January or February.
