Package details

The children will meet Mistress Mary Carter, the housekeeper of the Manor House at Donington le Heath. She will invite them to explore the home of Lord and Lady Digby who owned it in 1620 to see how it is similar or different to the way they live today. Mistress Carter will get the children to help her prepare for a banquet for her employers by setting the table in the Great Chamber and helping with a few tasks in the kitchen in preparation for the meal. The children will get the opportunity to dress in clothes from the period, play with Tudor toys, play musical instruments, dance and make a lavender bag to take home with them.
