Whats New?

How can the Abbey Medieval Festival get any more amazing, you ask?

What will they have this year that is new and different?

 

This year, you can expect not only a brand new layout of the Festival, but you can now visit not one, but two new authentic Village Precincts!

The first of these is “Kirkby”, our 14th-15th century Village, where you can see some encampments from that particular time period, and participate in activities such as Finger Looping, and Split Ring Mail Making.

The second new Village precinct is the “Crusaders Quarter” which will host specialist re-enactment groups. Here, for your entertainment and education, you can see shows and displays such as Bedouin Coffee Making, Cavalry Tactics and Horses: East Meets West talk, and a Lucet and Weaving Workshop.

Make sure you visit the Info Booth this year, as we will have a REAL SUIT OF ARMOUR on display. This armour was recently purchased by the Abbey Museum, and is originally from the 15th Century!

 

New in the VIP area is a 2 storey, ‘tudor’ themed viewing gallery for our special guests and Sponsors!

 

Exciting news for our Jousters! We have 2 Jousters coming from CANADA to compete for the Abbey Tournament Champion title! Who will you be cheering for??

The Festival is going green! You may have heard that this year we will be beginning the transition to no plastic bottled water being sold inside the Festival gates. There are many reasons we have chosen to take this initiative, and for this year only, we will be selling limited edition Abbey water bottles, for you to fill up at any one of our 4 Water Rehydration Stations. You may catch some cheeky pedlars selling bottled water around the Festival for this year, but as of next year, remember to bring your own water bottle for unlimited FREE refills throughout the day.

 

To see all this and much more, plus all the much loved shows and displays from previous years, buy your tickets now!
