For this year's calendar, we asked our staff and volunteers to share their favourite photos of work, life, and play at Kentwell.
Each day we will be posting a different picture submitted by a member of the Kentwell community. We hope you enjoy a glimpse into life at Kentwell - it might even inspire you to join us!
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 - 22nd December Judith Phillips, First Lady of Kentwell: Alva and Idunn enjoying Halloweenies. One of our newest events for children, this year's Halloweenies included a tour through the House. All the children were encouraged to dress up and zombies, princesses, witches, and even a miniature 'Thriller' Michael Jackson were to be seen exploring Kentwell and defeating the evil wizard!
Kentwell Advent Calendar - December There is nothing like a Kentwell sunset! Tudor volunteers relax on the Front Sward after a day in Elizabethan England. Thanks to Michael Pipe for sharing this photo.
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."
