Come to Kentwell and celebrate the coming of the Spring! May Day was always the most popular festival of the year - time to welcome in the better weather and celebrate.  

Step back into history and enjoy our event as we choose a may queen and prepare the may tree. Garlanding, processions and traditional entertainments, all accompanied by authentic, live music - it all happens right in front of you! All activities continue whatever the weather - there is lots to see and do.

There are also over thirty acres of gardens to explore - abundant and alive with spring bulbs and blossom everywhere. On the farm, see the lambs in the paddocks and meet the miniature shetland ponies.

An active, outdoor day out for explorers of all ages - a breath of fresh air for everyone!

A day at Kentwell Hall is never long enough and is a wonderful family, fun day out.
