Cooks from another era will be in the Peckover kitchens
Cooks from another era will be in the Peckover kitchens

The kitchens at Peckover House in Wisbech will be a hive of frantic activity over two weekends as cooks from another age take over.

Visitors can travel back in time to 1870 and witness a scene from Victorian Wisbech, where cooks are busy with preparations for a birthday party.

As the local LEADA dramatic group play their roles in the kitchen throughout the afternoon, visitors will be able to move around the room as usual, talking to the ‘cooks’ if they wish.

The kitchen staff will be busy preparing for ten-year-old Alexandrina’s birthday tea party, so there will be plenty to keep them busy and much for visitors to see.

Marmalade Cake, Linda Ekins’ group’s animated living history event, will take place on two consecutive Saturday afternoons on July 25 and August 1, from 1- 3pm.

There is no extra charge for visitors. For more information call 01945 583463 or by visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/peckover
