Event Details

Sunday 1st August is your opportunity to step back in time to the 16th Century for a fun day not to be missed!


A unique opportunity to engage with Grimsthorpe Castle’s most famous chatelaine, a day filled with family friendly fun and frivolity …. Tudor Style!


Considered the greatest heiress of her Generation, Catherine Willoughby Duchess of Suffolk,12th Baroness Willoughby de Eresby inherited Grimsthorpe along with 60 or so properties in Lincolnshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.  Her descendants continue to be custodians of Grimsthorpe to this day.


Catherine invites you to join her in some pastimes, games, quizzes and informative fun, supported by her 1st husband Charles Brandon and close friend Kateryn Parr, together they have so much to share! (For the eagle-eyed amongst you, yes theatrical licence has been taken!)


Together they will show you that Tudor and Elizabethan England wasn’t all politics and executions (so long as you kept your head down !) …. they also had fun!


Included in your day entry, you can book your tickets now by clicking here.  All entertainment is included within your ticket price plus there is so much more to see and explore!  An excellent day out for the whole family …. whilst you are with us don’t forget to visit the Vinteage tearoom, or Café Allez for that essential coffee & cake! Not forgetting Tipsy Trotter for Ice Cream in the Vanbrugh Courtyard.


Past-Times Living History will be on hand to entertain, enlighten, and engage with you all so do bring along some questions! There will also be lots of photo opportunities to capture your memories of a terrific Tudor day against the magnificent backdrop of Grimsthorpe Castle.
