What's on: events
Join us this year as our events programme time travels back to 15th century and celebrate when Henry V became King in 1413. And our Maize Maze also returns! With a mini maze.
Combining medieval celebrations with traditional gaming, we have transformed past merrymaking into 21st century entertainment, bringing Penshurst Place to life with the joy of games through a series of events, activities and workshops.
To find out what is happening on a certain day, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you can use our What's on calendar. Just hover over the date and if the text is white, an event should appear.
