Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 – Get ready for the best in courtly entertainment as Speke Hall is joined by James the Jester, who will have the whole family laughing along to his jolly japes and circus skills. Mingle with royalty as King Henry VIII and his six wives join them in full period costume, courtesy of Regal Rose Historical Portrayal.

Monday 6 – Let the Galliard Folk Dancers transport you back through the centuries as they perform traditional English country dances such as may have been seen around Speke Hall in years past.
