With a variety of different sized halls and rooms, it is perfect for anything from a small meeting to the largest of receptions. It is used for conferences, weddings and wedding receptions, fairs, recitals, meetings and parties.

The landscaped gardens, lawns and lake, with a fountain, provide a wonderful backdrop for your events and are particularly impressive for photographs.

Medieval Tales Minstrels, pilgrims and travellers

  • 10 June 2017 1-2:30pm

From lowly beginnings the medieval jongleur became an indispensable entertainer who brought their stories of love and war to both castles and villages alike. They helped knit together the different classes and languages of society into a single national identity through a shared heritage of heroes.
Discover if you have the skills to entertain nobility and commoners alike as you travel the country. Join in with our visiting bard and see if you can follow their tune on reproduction instruments.
Are you brave enough to undertake a pilgrimage to a faraway land? Could you face the risk of pirates, shipwreck, illness and
robbery? Discover what travel was like before the invention of the package holiday. Learn how and why the pilgrims travelled
and where they went. Come and hear the pilgrims’ tales and songs
that helped to ease their long and arduous journeys. See what other pastimes and entertainments they enjoyed and try them
