Kentwell Advent Calendar - 11th December   Emily Upson, Events and Admin Intern: "After two months of my internship at Kentwell, I was still making discoveries.  The Stillroom in the Moathouse was so different to any of the other places in Kentwell - I felt I had stumbled back in time!'

Kentwell Advent Calendar - 6th December   AJ, Combat School: "I think this picture epitomises the period of peace and relaxation between the last visitor leaving our station on the barn sward, and the flag going down. Tired but happy at the end of another Kentwell day in Tudor England!"

Kentwell Advent Calendar - 15th December   Dawn Basham aka #LambCam's 'Dawn the Sheep': "Mrs Smith and her ‘intended’, Fred, at Kentwell’s Eve of War 1914 event, back in August. My favourite event this year; a wonderful, poignant weekend to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War."

Jen Taylor, Amateur Tapestry Photographer: "The Case of the Missing Labels - Five large tapestries, four to be hung...and no labels. At this point, the question “So which one goes where?” had just been asked. No two days are the same at Kentwell and it's all hands to the deck behind the scenes - even Kentwell's resident plumber was called in to hang the tapestries!"

Kentwell Advent Calendar - 20th December   Rebekah Phillips, Scare Mastermind: "'The Through the Ages event was such a fun one.  Here you can see us enjoying lunch in the stable yard after a visit to the 1960s area where I enjoyed a relaxing hand massage and Alva and Idunn learnt about the Vietnam War and had their faces painted.  Amazing as ever to have this entertainment on offer in our back yard, and great to visit an event where I had no idea what period would be around the next corner."

Caution Tudors Crossing! Kentwell Advent Calendar - 19th December   Lizzie Craig, Intern: "During the Tudor Schools event, we were busy building the Scaresville set in the woods. To get back to the 21st Century we had to Mission Impossible it across the Manor so as not to be seen. At this point, we thought we were home clear, but we weren't - suddenly, there were Tudors crossing! Jo is on lookout at the front ready to give us the nod so we can commando roll to our next hiding place!"

Kentwell Advent Calendar - 16th December  Master Cain, Kentwell’s original gardener. With his broad Suffolk accent, wealth of tales, and vast knowledge of herb-lore, he will be remembered fondly by our early visitors.  Rarely did a maid pass through the Walled Garden without a recommendation for a topical application of Love-in-a-Mist, and  fellows advised to take seven broad beans a day to aid during ‘High Wenching Season’.  A real Kentwell character.
