Medieval Encampment Weekend
Jul 30th 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
The Medieval Combat Society will be erecting their tents around the parade ground showing various crafts of the period including weaving, candle making and potage cookery.
There will be Knights in armour battling each other on foot in spectacular combat clad in plate and chain mail with a variety of weapons, attended by squires and servants and watched by the King's court and their children, from the period of Edward III. There will also be archery and medieval dancing.
This year as a special attraction, there will be Birds of Prey displays by Kingston Maurward College on both days.
They will be bringing two handlers, who will be in medieval costume, to demonstrate the skills of these amazing birds. There will also be information boards explaining historical falconry and educational talks. A great addition to the weekend.
The group have performed all over the country including Windsor Castle and many English Heritage and National Trust properties.
This promises to be a fantastic weekend not to be missed.
