VISITORS to Bromsgrove’s Avoncroft Museum this weekend will be able to find out more about the Roman, Viking, Tudor and Victorian eras of British history.

Historic re-enactors dressed in period costume from those times will be at the venue this Saturday and Sunday (March 15 and 16).

The living history weekend will see them set up base on the 19-acre site, living there for the two days and demonstrating traditional past-times from day-to-day tasks, such as cooking and cleaning, to eating and spending their leisure time.

Visitors will be able to talk to them about how lives were lived back then and there will also be demonstrations of traditional baking in the museum’s Toll House, using the original Victorian bread oven.

The venue will be open from 10.30am to 5pm on both days and admission will be £8.80 for adults, £7.70 for seniors, £4.50 for children and free to members of Avoncroft Museum.
