27 Feb Sudeley Castle 2019 Season
Sudeley Castle 2019 Season
Sudeley Castle is preparing to re-open its doors to the public for its busiest most ambitious season yet.
From jousting knights, giant Easter egg trails and open air theatre, to an archaeological dig, music festivals and a summer knight school, there is plenty to see and do at Sudeley Castle this year.
The castle re-opens on Monday March 4 and will be kicking off its 2019 season with visits from some of its most famous past inhabitants, including Queen Katherine Parr, who will be welcoming visitors on the opening day.
Queen Katherine will be among eight historic reenactors, including Thomas Seymour, Anne Herbert, Princess Elizabeth and her governess, greeting visitors to the attraction on Monday March 4 to celebrate the start of the 2019 season.
Sudeley Castle was one of the Tudors’ most treasured palaces, often housing those closest to the crown. Today the castle is home to Elizabeth, Lady Ashcombe, who this year celebrates 50 years of living at Sudeley after moving there in 1969 with her husband Mark Dent-Brocklehurst.
There will be a host of new events on offer for the first time this year, including summer evening garden tours, dawn chorus walks, outdoor theatre productions of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream among the beautiful castle ruins, and a new ‘Women of Sudeley’ exhibition in September.
