A Suffolk castle will be hosting a new “Medieval Festival” event this bank holiday weekend - taking visitors back in time.
The event, which runs Saturday-Monday at Framlingham Castle, will feature knights taking part in a “thrilling battle” – while children can learn the art of combat in “Sword School”.
Costumed characters from the period will be leading talks and demonstrations throughout the weekend, showing visitors what domestic life was like centuries ago, including cooking, medicine and spectacle makers.
Cate Milton, events manager at English Heritage, said: “If you’re looking for a day out with a difference over the bank holiday weekend, come along to Framlingham Castle and explore medieval England.
“The castle will come alive with costumed characters and performances throughout the weekend so families can experience what life would have been like during the period, from the food ate, the rules they lived by and their skills in battle.”
