Temple Newsam Home Farm hosted a series of activities to show people what life was like in key periods of history, including World War Two and the Anglo-Saxon period.

Visitors joined in on a sing-a-long with ‘Dolly Blue Sings the Blues’ and young people were given the chance to don an apron and join Auntie in making butter and scones.
