15th century military encampment

15th Century Encampment

Saturday 21 May to Sunday 22 May 2016
10.30am - 5pm

Come and visit a small 15th century military encampment. If a mini tournament had come to town what would you have seen? Come and see!

There will be displays of crafts and practical skill demonstrations in the morning, along with an archery display. In the afternoon you can see how a knight prepared and the different pieces of armour they would have worn, followed by a small knights’ tournament. This tournament would have been a peace time sport for the knights.

Outline timetable:

  • 10:30am-12:30pm Crafts and skills demonstrations with music
  • 11am Archery display
  • 1:30pm Arming of the knight (talk presentation)
  • 2pm-3pm Knights’ tournament
  • 3.30pm-5pm Visit the encampment

The same activities will take place on both Saturday and Sunday.
