Englands Medieval Festival



Englands Medieval Festival at Herstmonceux Castle

24th, 25th & 26th August 2019

England’s Medieval Festival is the most authentic, one-of-a-kind medieval themed festival in Great Britain, where you can immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, smells and spectacle of medieval times.

Watch the festival highlights here of this very special blend of history and fun for the whole family.

Enjoy the thrill of Knights Jousting; Twice daily Battle and Siege of the Castle; magnificent Grand Parades; highly-skilled Falconry displays; Hundreds of Craftsmen and Traders; a Kid’s Kingdom; Crafts & Games areas; Workshops & Demonstrations; Minstrels, Magicians; Jesters; Hog Roasts and even a hilarious Mud Show!

There’s plenty of opportunity to join the fun too – with have-a-go jousting, archery and axe throwing; sword school; drum school; workshops for all ages, including chainmail, calligraphy,
wood-weaving, blacksmith-forging and many other traditional arts and crafts.

Wizards, jesters, knights, dragons and princesses delight the kids; while the living history village
offers the chance to see what it would really have been like to live in the Middle Ages.

Traditional musicians join a music line-up of foot-stomping folk bands who perform each day
and evening on four outdoor and two indoor stage areas.

Real ale, traditional mead and medieval eats are available alongside delicious cuisine for all the
family; and kids of all ages adore the moonlit cinema showing medieval themed classics.

The festival hosts weddings, blessings and traditional hand-fasting celebrations over the weekend.
