Lords and ladies of the manor

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Longth­orpe Tower was full of me­dieval char­ac­ters at the week­end. Boys and girls were able to take part in ‘How to be a Princess’ and ‘How to be a knight’ ses­sions on both Satur­day and Sun­day. The ses­sions in­cluded me­dieval danc­ing and tak­ing part in a sol­dier’s drill. Visi­tors could find out what the Lord of the Manor was hav­ing for din­ner and also learn to write with a quill with a monk from the abbey or see the bar­ber sur­geon for a cure of any ail­ment they might have. Some of the lucky chil­dren who got to ex­pe­ri­ence life as a princess were Tilly Bail­lie (5), Char­lotte-Mae Bloom (5), Mil­lie Pren­tice (6) and Emily-Jo Bloom (9).
