Artisans will also be on hand to demonstrate traditional country crafts including thatching, making hurdles and rush matting.
Events to mark the house's origins are also planned.
There will be a display of Victorian bowling on the sunken lawn, the chance to examine and try on medieval armour, the Knebworth archery team will give a display of longbow archery and there is the opportunity for visitors to shoot some arrows. There is a small additional charge for this.
