Captain Saviles 15th Century re-enactment weekend
June 18 - June 19
This wonderful re-enactment weekend offers visitors a chance to see a fully equipped camp complete with medieval tents 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. As well as watching the professionals in action, our visitors can also have a go and participate in combat – whatever your age, this is your chance have a go and see how you’d fare mid battle! See what it’s like to face a charge, handle the weapons (all items sanitised between activities), and feel the pull of the bow and arrow! Not to be missed! The weekend is a real slice of medieval life – in peace as well as in combat, with a court hearing and role play re-enactment, inspection of archers, a ‘Mummers’ play (a traditional folk play). All combatants will be asked to adhere to Government guidelines.
