Forthcoming Event

EH: The Festival of History returns to Kelmarsh Hall, Northamptonshire on 16 & 17 July 2011 for a weekend of ‘clashing swords, thundering hooves and epic battles’.  One of the highlights this year is a replica WWI trench, recreated by a team who have been working on Steven Spielberg's latest movie War Horse.
 
In the Family Activity Area children will find dozens of fun activities to take part in, from dressing up as a Roman soldier to taking a role on stage in a play.  There'll also be juggling shows and an intriguing Victorian travelling show featuring Lionel the sharpshooting lobster!  Visitors can then unwind at the traditional Victorian seaside where you can build a sandcastle, watch a Punch & Judy show, or just relax in a deck chair.
