A child with their head in wooden stocks.

Experience the gruesome side of Medieval England at a stinking event, taking you into the heart of the working classes. Soak up the medieval sights, smells and sounds living at the wrong end of the garderobe!

Come and experience our medieval village and muck in with the community.

What's in store?

Blacksmith demonstrations, fletching, hourly trials in the King’s court, medieval medicine, storytelling, and more... Meet the baker, visit the travelling apothecary, there's arrow making, bread making and dung flinging. Games and horrible stuff for kids.

Come and enjoy a horrible day out with the family!
