A Call to Arms! Knights and Crusaders
April 20 @ 10:00 am - April 22 @ 4:30 pm£11 – £13
Easter Weekend 2019 will be one to remember with A Call to Arms! Kings and Crusaders. Visitors will see the Castle become the scene of preparation for Richard The Lionheart, King of England, to embark on the Third Crusade.
Explore the Castle as it would have appeared in 1189 as the King’s Barons and Knights raise men and supplies in the large tented encampment on the lower lawns.
Visitors will witness breath-taking demonstrations of Norman weaponry, armour, combat, battle tactics, archery and falconry. There will also be a craft tent and have-a-go archery for the over 8s to enjoy across the three-days of 12th century festivities.
