The Eve of War, WWI Centenary Event

This weekend, Kentwell Hall is holding a special WWI Centenary Event. The Eve of War explores domestic country house life in 1914 as Britain prepared to enter the Great War.

We know that by August 1914 there were troops camping in the Park and officers staying at the House as the guests of Sir John Aird. The Eve of War is a small re-creation, but a fantastic opportunity to learn more about Edwardian life as you meet and interact with our participants re-creating life and work on the Manor in 1914. The re-creation is included in our normal House Opening ticket price.
