Easter Monday

We had an enjoyable first costume day of 2015, busy but not too manic, allowing us to get back in to the swing of things. The new outfits looked great on the various people who tried them. Lots of photos were taken – just finished sorting through them and posted some here on the drop down list under the photo gallery tab.

We even had a mention in a national newspaper! A columnist in the Daily Telegraph at the end of March wrote about how visits to National Trust properties have changed over time, and there is more jollity now with activities such as chocolate Easter trails and Tudor dressing up at Trerice. We were even mentioned in the same paragraph as Poldark, which will be the closest we ever get to Aidan Turner! 

(Trerice was Winston Graham’s inspiration for Trenwith, one of the Poldark family’s houses)

Our next costume day is Monday 4 May.

Arundell Wardrobe Unlock’d 2015

There’s only one more day left before the first costume day of the new season. On Easter Monday visitors of all ages will have an opportunity to try on clothes based on the Arundell brasses from the 1560s and 1570s, and get a taste of life as one of the household at Trerice in the reign of Elizabeth I. 

We’ve spent the last week or so putting the finishing touches to some new costumes, and tweaking some of the old ones. The new grey gown with farthingale is finished and is awaiting it’s first trying on. 

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow in the Hayloft.
