More information from organisers:

Why were Elizabethans always on the edge of their seats? What did we do in a world before Velcro? How many Elizabethans does it take to get ready for a ball?

Bring your whole family to see our Family Dressing Demonstration, where you can see how Elizabethan women got dressed – whether it was for a party, work, or just to sit around. Try on the clothes of a gentleman courtier, or a ne’er do well about town, learn to bow, ‘make a leg’ and doff your hat like a real Elizabethan!

Child and adult tickets are the same price.
All children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
