Captain Savile’s 15th Century Re-enactment Weekend
Saturday 29 June and Sunday 30 June 10am to 5pm.
Free with admission. This wonderful ‘Living History’ weekend offers visitors a chance to see a fully equipped camp complete with medieval tens and a camp kitchen. Re-enactors carry out the everyday tasks of medieval life such as chopping wood, fetching water, food preparation and, within the castle itself, displays of spinning silk as well as cooking, the medieval way. The weekend is a real slice of medieval life, with a court hearing and role play re-enactment, inspection of archers, a ‘Mummers’ play (a traditional folk play), and a chance for adults and children to get involved with drills and inspections.
