A special event in aid of StreetLife, supporting the homeless in Bristol and The Hawk and Owl Trust, working for wild birds of prey and their habitat.
StreetLife is the Acton Aid Chairman’s nominated Charity for 2018.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, there are some changes to the scheduled programme. Mike Scott and Rick Payne will be replaced by Steve Goodfield and Hilary Pavey. Anne Boleyn with her Lady in waiting Jane Seymour will do two demonstrations: ’Dressing the Queen’ at 12 noon and ‘Undressing the Queen’ at 3:30pm. Lady Joan Poyntz, the owner of Acton Court circa 1535, will be joining them in the afternoon.
