Gasp as lances shatter in legendary medieval jousts and meet our dashing knights as you marvel at the splendour of their armour. Soak up the atmosphere in our all-action clash of the knights’ contest and keep your eyes peeled for our cheeky jester as he flaps, falls and fumbles. There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained in our family zone with junior jousting and the chance to become a heroic knight in our Children’s Melee!

We’ve also got have a go circus skills, games, a WW2 obstacle course, and interactive medieval music workshops. Throughout the day, wander through our living history encampments and discover what life was like in England throughout the ages. Get up close with our civil war living history and watch a musket display demonstrating a mixture of skill and agility.

Join an interactive family performance with Time Will Tell and witness graceful hawks and glorious falcons in flight with our expert falconers. Top up your energy at our catering outlets to keep enjoying the festivities all day long and visit our fine historic traders.

So join us as we demonstrate everything quintessentially English and celebrate England’s legendary patron saint. Please note that access to the café and children’s play area will be ticket only during the weekend.
