Have a question you need answered that you just can’t find on our website?
Below is list of some of the most common questions we have been asked this year. Chances are, you will find the answers you need here.
Can we bring our own lunch?
Yes, you can, just no alcohol. We have our own Tavern on site for this!
What does our ticket entitle us to do?
Your general entry tickets entitles you to visit and view everything inside the Festival, with the exception of the VIP area, and the Jousts. You can buy VIP tickets to enhance your experience even more, and you can buy Joust tickets, for any of the Joust sessions. When you are roaming around the Re-enactor encampments, please feel free to view the camps and ask as many questions as you like. Many of the encampments have workshops and displays as well. Note the encampment etiquette though, and remember that real people are living in these real camps, with their own real food and personal items. Do not enter any personal space and do not eat any food that isn’t specifically for the public. If you are unsure of something, ask!
What children’s activities are available?
There are many activities, shows and displays for children of all ages. See our suggested itineraries for some of the activities available, and the final program will outline everything on offer as well.
If I purchase a weapon on the day, how do I get a permit for the day?
After purchasing your weapon, you will need to head straight to the Security Post and complete some paperwork to obtain the permit.
Is a health card a concession?
Yes it is, see our list of the concession cards we accept.
What time is the Knighting Ceremony on?
The Knighting Ceremony is held on the Friday night before the Festival (8th July) at 7:30pm, in the Abbey Church.
We can’t find the banquet menu on the web page.
When will the program be available so we can plan our day?
The program will be available on the website by the end of May. You can also view our Suggested Itineraries for some of the activities and shows on this year.
Will there be first aid personnel on site?
Yes, there most certainly is a team of trained first aid personnel on site all weekend, as well as a security and crowd control team.
