The Tudors came to town at Burwell Museum last week with the help of apothecary, Neil Storey, and musicians, longbow specialists and a sixteenth century bagpipe player.

Older children even got the chance to shoot arrows from one of Terri Betson's collection of longbows while others played drum to her husband Paul Craske's sixteenth century bagpipes or sat quietly enthralled by the tales of a Malcolm the Tudor storyteller.
