This event brings history to live with jousting, historical displays, music, dance, markets, crafts and historical lectures. It lasts for a whole week during July starting with a medieval banquet. Through out the week there are a series of workshops in all facets of medieval life. Parents will be glad to know that there is a special children’s day filled with free medieval fun. The children can attend workshops on this day for a gold coin donation. Gates open at 9am and there are plenty of parking available.
