Bleak Mid-winter

Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th January

How did people survive the cold, cold winters of the past?

Avoncroft’s costumed re-enactors will be demonstrating how people lived during the harsh winters of Tudor times, Victorian times and the 1940s.

Throughout the weekend, you will be given a glimpse of the past as re-enactors demonstrate how to survive the winter without modern conveniences, demonstrating traditional cooking, preserving and craft techniques.

Younger visitors will be able to make bird feeders using natural materials.

Winter Museum admission charges apply, no need to book, just come along!
