1690s Ambigue

You are invited to visit late 17th century life with re-enactment group; History Re-enactment Workshop.

Meet a local landowning family, their visitors and the household servants as they present and enjoy a sumptuous Ambigue (picnic).

Chat with them to find out what life is like and how different it is if you are a landowner or a servant.

Join in the discussions about the issues of the day- what is the gossip surrounding Court and the Royal Family? Does the landowner prefer the English or the French style of gardens that are being planned for their estate? How will this effect the local people?
