Spies and Searchers - Easter bank holiday
Sunday 9th April 11.00am till 4.00pm
Who will you trust this Easter Bank Holiday?
This Easter we are holding our first ever spies and searchers event. During the reign of Elizabeth I, Harvington Hall and Catholic houses like it, would have been watched closely by the Elizabethan spy network! As you walk around the Hall and its grounds, meet the characters and see if you can work out who the spies are, and see if you can decipher the codes.
Throughout the day see how the priest hunters would search houses for the priests and learn their tactics! Can you work out where the priest hides are by using their methods, or are they too clever to find? Speak with our reenactors and learn how to send coded letters and the art of invisible ink used during Elizabethan times. Hear tales of real priest hunts and how the priests escaped.
Keep your wits about you because you never know if you are talking to friend or foe!
There are no guided tours running this day, but guides are on hand to answer questions
