Details

Beaumaris Castle Easter Fun Weekend! 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 really like 700 years ago.

There will be different activities on different days, so please check what's happening on the website or call the site for more information. 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. Plus crafts and living history demonstrations. There will be jester workshops and arena performances where the jester will show off his amazing skills and entertain. And also birds of prey talks and flying demonstrations, and the chance to hold one of these magnificent birds. Children can make crafts and learn about what these birds would have eaten by dissecting an owl pellet. 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 full programme of arena demonstrations where knights will show off their archery skills, plus fighting displays and lots more.

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