Houghton Hall 2012

This event was a two day event during the Easter holiday at Houghton Hall near Kings Lynn, Norfolk. This was our second privately organised event at this magnificent stately home. The house is situated in a deer park and some of the best gardens in the country. It also supports a 20,000 piece collection placed in a dioramas in the stable block. The event was held in the grounds next to the museum. We had rain which became the theme for the rest of the year!!!! It was our first event of the season and included drill, living history and two firing displays.
