Cheer on the Knights!


The full Medieval Period from Vikings to Tudor will be encamped in the Great Tower Field of Caldicot Castle this September. Over 200 re-enactors will transform the castle into a living timeline, showing off their particular period of history to the fullest.

Highlights include a full Viking Village set up within the grounds. Witness Viking Skirmishes as they pillage the nearby area, vikings skills and crafts and authentic re-enactments of the Nordic way of life.

Come and see the living history activities, marvel at the speed and skill of the Destriers as they Joust on the Tilt, have a go at archery with the Castle Archers and witness skirmishes and battles throughout the day.
