This Picture of the Week shows when Gainsborough Old Hall went back in time at the weekend to celebrate St George’s Day the old-fashioned way - Medieval style.

Lord Burgh’s Retinue markeded St George’s Day at the Old Hall with a range of activities from cooking and maths to battle re-enactments and more - all to show how people lived at the grand house during the 16th and 17th Centuries.

Pictured are from left Liane Merrett, Veronica Fottit and Laura Clark in traditional costume, in the Kitchen of the Old hall.
