And if not looking at displays why not spend time in the Guesten Hall where live music, a fashion show and other activities of the time will be taking place. Or have a browse around the many traders selling period items at your own leisure.

Food and drink will be supplied by Betty’s Waffles, Bars on the Run and our own Tea Rooms.
