Conquest Living History at Richmond Castle

DATE

Sat 25 – Sun 26 Sept 2021 

TIME

10am - 5pm

LOCATION

Richmond Castle 

SUITABLE FOR

Everyone

Towering above the river Swale in the heart of Richmond the castle has been a spectacular and imposing sight since its foundation in the 1070s. A bold statement of great wealth and power and an incredible survival of an early 11th century stone castle. Originally built to subdue the unruly North of England it is one of the greatest Norman fortresses in Britain.

Move forward 950 years to the present day and enter the encampment of Conquest, The Norman re-enactment society. Experience what life may have been like for the people of the time. See the surgery and armoury and heft a sword or try on a hauberk; discuss the fashions of the time or listen to the Norman cooks and try some of the foods that would grace the tables of the men who made up the garrison. Then observe as they train daily to keep their fighting skills in trim.

Over two days you can experience the sights and sounds of Norman life at the castle and witness a spectacle worthy of the 950th anniversary of the founding of Richmond Castle.
