Welcome to Abbeystowe

A kaleidoscope of music, colour, pageantry, education and fun!

There is so much to do and see during Tournament Weekend we recommend arriving with a plan to maximise your time and experience.

If 2021 will be your first visit, there are a number of ways to learn about what to expect as we release details through our website and social media. Keep connected with us on Facebook and Instagram, and you may also check back to this website for updates.

We will release program details along with tips to have the best experience over the coming months. Here’s a taste of what to expect.

Re-enactors are at the heart of the authenticity of the Abbey Medieval Festival!  Their passion and skill in a range of all things medieval are nothing less than incredible!

There’s the 5 tournaments, medieval animals, demonstrations of craftsmanship and cooking, workshops and presentations.

There’s cannons and trebuchets, and a siege at the castle! There’s jugglers and jesters, musicians and performers.

There’s the wonderful hustle of a medieval marketplace that feels like you’ve been transported to another time and place. And if that’s just a taste of what you will experience, then perhaps we should mention the food…a variety of flavour spanning countless cultures and traditions.  Come hungry for it all!

Making the pilgrimage to Abbeystowe, the home of the Abbey Medieval Festival, is a chance to step back in time as 1,000 years of history comes to life. It is authentic, inspirational value for the entire family!
