Travel back to the 18th century, to participate in fun-filled activities, showcase local arts and crafts, and demonstrate how these skills continue to be passed from generation to generation. Enjoy a wide range of traditional 18th century games and activities for all the family – whatever the age and ability! These activities varied from Trap and Ball, Aunt Sally and Croquet. You will also have the chance to watch local crafts people demonstrating their skills all weekend.
