Turning back the clock at Wymondham Abbey

Visitors to Wymondham Abbey will be able to step back in time to the High Middle Ages on Wednesday, June 15.
The abbey will host a themed medieval evening from 5pm to 8pm featuring jesters, falconer demonstrations, archery and medieval music.
The aim is to give people a taste of life in 1107 - the year the abbey was founded.
The abbey was dissolved on the orders of Henry VIII in 1538. The church was spared, and continues as the town's parish church.
Entry to the event costs £5 for adults, for which visitors will receive medieval money to spend around the grounds. Children can get in for free.

The evening is part of the abbey's annual living history programme which focuses on teaching what life was like in the past to pupils of Wymondham's schools. There will be a hog roast and ale on tap.
