Open Day - A Medieval May
05 May 11:00am - 4:00pm at The Weaver's House, Coventry
A rare Sunday opening for this little medieval house. Guests Coventry Militia will be bringing history to life on site! They will be dressing in period costume and demonstrating armour and arms of the Wars of the Roses. Visitors will also have the chance to take part in some late medieval table top games and hear about Coventry’s importance in this period when it was where the royal court was held.
Plus see how John Croke, a Coventry narrow-loom weaver and his family would have lived and worked including a full-size replica of a medieval loom (please note that the solar room containing the loom is accessed by ladder). Explore the working medieval garden showing the plants that would have been grown for food, flavouring, medicine and household use.
Tea, coffee and homemade cakes are served on Open Days.
