A Suffolk castle will be hosting medieval art, cookery and dancing, as well as a tournament of knights, during a new event for the Easter weekend.

English Heritage is inviting families to journey back to the 14th century for its “Medieval Life” event at Framlingham Castle.

The event, which runs from Good Friday to Easter Monday will offer visitors the chance to “immerse themselves in the sights and sounds” of the period, complete with a “bustling medieval encampment” to explore and peasants, knights and ladies to meet.

Visitors will be able to learn about archery, medieval recipes and the rules of court life, and watch displays from dancing to a knights tournament.

There will also be lessons on the history of timekeeping, from early water clocks, and chances to hear about how medieval people lived their lives and celebrated Easter.
