Companye of Merrie Folke
The Companye of Merrie Folke will set up camp at Layer Marney Tower from Sunday to Monday 26th and 27th May. Come and meet them and chat about their lives and times. Meet the baker and baxter (the female baker) as they cook bread in their “dragon” oven, marvel at the work of the basket maker and weaver. Be suspicious of the “cures” on offer from the cunning man, his charms are not to be relied on, although the herbalist is rather more plausible. There will be women embroidering and musicians playing music – giving you the flavour of domestic life in a Tudor village.
A chance to mingle and relax amidst the Tudor people, feeling for their struggles and problems as well as their ways of fun and entertainment.
