Treaty of Montgomery Re-enactment weekend

Treaty of Montgomery Re-enactment weekend

Join in the fun at Montgomery Castle on Saturday 30th September.


The Treaty of Montgomery was signed on 29th September 1267 between King Henry III of England and Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, leader of the Welsh lords. They met at Rhydwhyman Ford in Caerhowell, which was at the time a key crossing point of the Severn. The Treaty they signed recognised Llywelyn as the Prince of Wales, giving him territories in Wales and England. In return, he swore loyalty to Henry. The signing represented the first time that an English ruler recognised the right of a Welsh prince to rule over Wales.

On Friday 29th September there will be a short re-enactment of the signing of the Treaty at Rhydwhyman Ford. Local schoolchildren will be transported to Caerhowell to take part. Later in the evening, there will be a medieval banquet and entertainment in the Town Hall. Montgomery based brewery Monty’s will be commemorating the event with a celebratory brew which will be available throughout the weekend!

On Saturday 30th September there will be a medieval encampment based at Montgomery Castle. The camp will allow visitors to learn about life in the 13th century and to see clothing, food and weaponry from the period. Children will have the opportunity to dress up and handle weapons safely, and there will be some mock tourneys and skirmishes.
