More than 130 “Tudors” embraced ye olde traditions at Eastbury Manor on Sunday.
People dressed up in suitable attire and danced to music dating back to the 16th century at the house in Eastbury Square, Barking.
Volunteer Lesley Gould hosted a harvest trail and put on craft activities and there were prizes for completing games and making scarecrows.
Ivana Bilic, Eastbury’s events co-ordinator, said: “It was great to engage the visitors in some old traditions, such as cooking over an open fire, where we made a very tasty and super healthy vegetable pottage.”
Stalls were set up, including one by Gale Street Organics, which explained the benefits of growing your own fruit and vegetables.
