About this event
Got something MAGICAL planned this weekend?
How about something with magicians, fairies, wizards, mystics, magic menders, water bubble fun, fairy-tale cottage, unicorn, Mad Hatters, gnomes, witches, Santa Claus & family on holiday, and more…
Interactive magical family fun at Kentwell Hall
From sorcery and trickery to alchemy and fairies, a wonderful day of magic lies in wait. The House and grounds will be open, with magic spread across 30 acres of enchanting gardens, with a surprise around every corner.
So much to do
Have your fortune read by Gnostic Gned; join the Princesses Union; discuss government at the Gods and Goddesses Conference; help Alice in Wonderland find the Cheshire Cat and we have heard tell that Mr and Mrs Christmas fancy holidaying at Kentwell this summer...
Why not add to the fun and dress your little (and big) witches, wizards, elves, pixies, and fairies up for their visit?
Explore the gardens — and keep a look out for gnomes and fairies!
The gnomes can talk for hours about mini beasts and worms, and have a great Nine Gnomes Morris floor game. The spider fairies are on a mission to catch spiders that the naughty pixies released, help them out and your little one may even be able to make a spider to take home!
Bring your little wizards and witches to meet our big ones… and decorate your own wand to help you weave some wonderous spells.
About the Venue
Kentwell Hall is Suffolk’s hidden gem and one of England’s finest Tudor houses that stands within the most extensive moat in the county and nearly 30 acres of formal gardens and grounds.
The house offers the visitor a journey through time from the Great Tudor Kitchen, the Gothic centre block to the State bedroom that was created by Thomas Hopper in the 1820s for a visit from the then Duke of York.
The house offers a relaxed environment, mixed with an individuality that is not often seen these days in great historic venues.
Kentwell Hall’s organic gardens are a combination of ancient features, elements of the substantial alterations of Lady Guthrie, tenant during the 1930s, and the recent landscaping and planting by the current owners.
Particular areas of interest include the formal walled garden with its glorious borders providing seasonal displays of colour, the wildlife meadows and the Pied Piper Topiary hedge.
Whilst the magnificent Cedar Trees that date back to the late 18th century provide a lovely backdrop and The Sculpted Tree, based on the theme of the Tower of Babel, is the UK's biggest single wood carving.
The house and gardens are described as “magical with a surprise around every corner” and are to be enjoyed at your leisure.
The Stable Yard Tea Rooms serve light lunches and afternoon tea using seasonal produce from the gardens and farm.
Kentwell Hall is famous for producing some of the countries largest Re-creations and family events that run throughout the year.
Kentwell is available to hire for weddings, corporate functions, events and filming.
