The castle will welcome warrior knights who will take you back to how life was during medieval times. Come and join in all the fun and see what life was like 700 years ago.

There will be different activities on different days, so please check what's happening.

All weekend there will be a Knights School where children and adults can try on armour, join in a spear drill and see how archers attacked and defended the castle. There will be crafts, living history demonstrations and birds of prey. Also, in the birds of prey area, children will be able to make their own paper cup Easter owls which will include some tasty treats.

On Good Friday and Easter Saturday there will be a large encampment in the inner ward, with lots of living history and demonstrations.

On Easter Sunday and Monday there will be a knighting ceremony, archery tournament, squire and weapon training, dressing as a knight and a knights tournament.

The Easter Egg trail will be on the Sunday and Monday only.
