Past Times Living History Weekend brings history alive from several periods and is a real time travellers’ day out

The Ferrers Household take you back to the 15th century with the forge, the pole lathe, pewter casting, calligraphy, cooking, carpentry, archery with fletching and bowyer (making arrows and bows), ferrets, children’s games from the period and medieval armour, which the public can access to dress up, hold and take photos. Children can also join in battle drills.

Back to the Victorian period at the bandstand with Music Hall shows, parlour games with Queen Victoria and a visit from the Temperence League.

Mid-twentieth Century in the Village part of the museum will give a glimpse into a day in the life of tram drivers and conductors, Punch and Judy and an opportunity to learn the Charleston and have a go with toys from the past. Also visit Harnett’s Household Goods, a shop display that will take you down memory lane.
