We are excited to share that the Longthorpe Tower living history re-enactment weekend has been rescheduled to Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December.

Come and see Peterborough's famous Longthorpe Tower brought to life by The Medieval Sokemen Living History Group, who will be bringing their costumes, props and expert knowledge of this historical period to the Tower to delight and inspire our visitors. This will be the first weekend of its kind since Nene Park Trust took over the day to day management of the Tower. 

When you visit the Medieval Longthorpe Tower that weekend, not only will you see the stunning Medieval wall paintings, but you will get a flavour of life as it would have been in the 15th century, when the manor house was occupied by the Whittlebury Family.

Experienced costumed interpreters will share the remarkable story of the house and its décor and explain about daily life in the 1400s. Find out about the food, costume, medicine, arms and armour and there will also be the opportunity to find out more about how Christmas was celebrated 500 years ago. Meet the Lady of the Manor, a soldier, a barber, a surgeon, a cook and other costumed characters.

One-hour tours will be running throughout the weekend from 10am - 3.30pm and are suitable for all ages and levels of interest. 

We are hoping this weekend will the first of many similar weekends hosted at Longthorpe Tower, bringing its colourful Medieval history to life and inspiring our visitors. Keep your eyes out for future weekend dates.
