Local History Summer Fair at Eastbury Manor House

Aug 28th to Aug 28th Eastbury Manor House

Eastbury Manor House is hosting their first Local History Fair! This is an exciting opportunity to find out about local history in your neighbourhood.

Eastbury Manor House will celebrate its farming history by having a yard of farm animals including a miniature pony, a donkey, sheep, goats, a dog, chickens, ducks and rabbits. A magical experience for children growing up in the surrounding urbanised area to enjoy a little piece of the countryside.

There will be living history displays, a chance to take part in some old time crafts and make a souvenir to take home.

The Buttery Tearoom will be offering a delicious new menu as well as our classic homemade cakes and scones.

Free entry to residents of Barking and Dagenham, please bring proof of address.
Free entry for National Trust members.
Admission: Adults: £4, Concessions: £2, Group: £3, Family: £8 (two adults and two children)
