Join in for a weekend of medieval merriment and mayhem as the Museums Quarter and High Street are transformed into a medieval encampment.
Come face-to-face with knights in armour, a unit of archers, medieval residents of the street, craftspeople and musicians.
Join in with life in the past and find out whether you’d have made a brilliant knight or a first-class archer. Or how about making pottery, learning how to spin or honing your wood-working skills?
The weekend will include…
• Combat displays from knights in armour
• Medieval pottery, spinning and woodwork demonstrations, and ‘have a go’ activities
• Cookery displays
• Musical performances
• Wandering medieval characters
• Archery demonstrations*
• Dance demonstrations
• And lots more!
*Please note, there will be a small fee for the archery activity
