The starring attraction will be two performances from the family favourite, Horrible Histories, brought straight from the West End. Performing exciting live scenes from the Birmingham Stage Company’s ‘Barmy Britain’ and featuring your favourite characters, audiences can expect an educational laugh.

Globally recognised experiential brand and jellymongers, Bompas and Parr, are bringing their exciting food art to the village. Be prepared to see and taste some spectacular jelly in an array of flavours ranging from traditional to the obscure.

Re-enactment specialists will be bringing some of the quirkier parts of the history of the estate alive with interactive presentations in costume with dance and music. The actors will be there to guide you around the village where free entertainment such as face painting, flower crowns, a tie-dye workshop and Victorian street games can be enjoyed. You will also be able to see fashion ‘then and now’.
