Go back to Tudor times at Coventry's St Mary's Guildhall this half term

Coventry Editorial 6th Feb, 2024   0

PARENTS looking for something to do with their children this half-term will be able to jump back in time with plenty of Tudor-themed activities at St Mary’s Guildhall.

The iconic 14th-century Guildhall will be providing plenty of activities exploring what life was like for Tudor families during the spring.

The venue will be hosting ‘Blooms and Tudor Spring Traditions’ from Saturday, February 10 until Friday, February 16 daily between 10am and 4pm.

Tudor experts will be in the medieval kitchen to reveal quirky spring-cleaning traditions and the secrets to maintaining an early modern household.

Visitors will be able to help clean pewter dishes with ground eggshells and dust with goose wings.

Youngsters can also tuck into traditional food as they step into the midst of Lent when Tudors were using up the last of their winter resources and counting down the days until their Easter feast.

And homemade arts and crafts will be taking place in the Guildhall’s Great Hall, with the chance for people to make their own spring flowers.

The trail and craft activities will run from February 10 to February 18.
