Visit the encampments of our medieval re-enactors to learn about the history and culture of the Middle Ages. There will be presentations, demonstrations and workshops throughout the day that give a real insight into what the medieval world looked like.
A presentation is a performance by the group which patrons are encouraged to watch – the re-enactors may be in character and in the moment, but they still appreciate an audience.
A demonstration can be of a craft, a tradition or technique where Festival goers are able to ask questions and engage in discussion.
A workshop allows you the opportunity to try your hand at a craft, trade or skill from the group’s time-period; don’t be afraid to give it a go!
There is a whole range of activities for your entertainment and interest. Re-enactors are happy to talk with you and answer your questions about their displays, so feel free to chat with them as you wander the Festival site.
