Clash of Knights

Date

Sat 12 & Sun 13 Aug 2017 

Time

10.30am-5pm

Location

Framlingham Castle 

Suitable For

Everyone

Kinghts in full chain armoury, covering their bodies and heads, and a red fabric vest top.

Chain-mailed and adrenalin-fuelled, massed ranks of armoured knights meet head on.

Feel the heat of the battle as four teams fight with clubs and shields in this contest of skill and strength. Tensions will rise, alliances will be made and broken but only one team will triumph. Revel in the atmosphere of the encampment as it buzzes with the activity of everyday medieval life.

Enjoy merry music while your budding young knights test their bravery on the field and burn off energy in battle drills.

This event is part of our Medieval Knights Season.
