Discover life in a Tudor Pharmacy and keep off the moths by making a muslin sweet bag with ingredients pounded in a pestle and mortar.

  • Preparing a remedy for colds and sore throats.
  • Shucking and pounding rosemary to prepare for distilling.
  • Having mystery bags of herbs to smell and finding their properties and uses as remedies.
  • Discovering the many unexpected uses of mice, frogs and snails!
  • Looking at bay, rosemary, sage, plantain, lavender, and cypress, the plants that were available in season and their properties as a Tudor lady would know them.

Advance booking is essential.
