Reenactor telling stories at Tintagel Castle

Discover how the legends of King Arthur inspired Victorian Romantics at Tintagel, with our eccentric castle custodian. Take part in our play, join in our have-a-go games and be spellbound by traditional tales of Arthurian folklore.

Timetable

11am My Tintagel
Pick up your Victorian penny from the ticket office and join Florence, who will sell you a glass of her homemade lemonade. She and her country cousin, Peter, will take you on a whistle stop tour of Tintagel Castle. Be prepared for lunacy as well as legends, the ludicrous as well as the learned!

12pm bZents presents: Arthur! Wart and All
Join bZents for an irreverent but fun look at the legend of King Arthur. Knights, round tables, magicians….they are all here!

1pm Pull The Uther One
Florence and her cousin tell the most ancient stories of the conception and birth of Arthur Pendragon, ancient King of The Britons. Expect a liberal dose of excitement, exaggeration and eccentricity as the ancient characters of Arthur, his father, Uther, and the magical Merlin are brought to life to tell the tale.
 
2pm bZents presents: Horatio's Last Hurrah!
As you are here by the seaside, we're pushing the boat out for the exploits of Britain's greatest seafaring legend, Horatio Nelson.
 
3pm The Curious, the Serious and the Frankly Amazed
Florence, ineptly aided by her cousin, regales all with stories of the famous nineteenth century visitors and how they re-told the tales and myths of Tintagel. Caution, involves stories, stilts and serious silliness.
 
4pm bZents presents: Arthur! Wart and All
Join bZents for an irreverent but fun look at the legend of King Arthur. Knights, round tables, magicians….they are all here!
