Weekend Picks: Bleak Midwinter Living History Weekend
Volunteers at the Avoncroft Museum in Bromsgrove in Worcestershire are welcoming visitors into their historic houses to experience how our ancestors survived winters in the past.
"With all our modern-day conveniences and central heating, it is easy to forget how hard life could be for our ancestors during the winter. Re-enactors will be staying in the historic houses at Avoncroft Museum and living as they would have done in the past, cooking typical meals, doing day-to-day chores and playing traditional games to pass the time. Audience participation is actively encouraged!”
