The Medieval Festival commences on 24th June with the first of two Medieval Banquets.

The Banquets are ticketed events where patrons enjoy a medieval feast beyond compare whilst being entertained with music, dance and theatre.

On Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th of July, join the many visitors who will come to immerse themselves in the spectacle of the 2017 Abbey Medieval Tournament.

Be one of the spectators at the joust and cheer on your champions who compete for glory and honour. Watch as combatants take up arms on the field of valour or prove themselves in the Turkish Oil Wrestling pit; be entertained by colourful dancers and taste the finest medieval cuisine. Lose yourself in the bustling marketplace or amongst the colourful tents of the medieval re-enactors’ encampments. Here you will glimpse the past as re-enactors portray facets of everyday life of Viking raiders and traders, of Middle Eastern warriors and nomads, and nobles and peasants from the great European households. Visit the Friar’s Folly Tavern for a drink or to sing along to the raucous music.

Once again the Birds of Prey will take to the skies over the Tournament grounds demonstrating the prowess of medieval falconry.
