Knights In Battle will be one of the 'sideshow' attractions - not particularly woody, perhaps, but a lot of people interested in traditional crafts are interested in other historical things. (Well, that's our excuse for having a recruiting stand there!)

 

We're not doing a full display, but you'll be able to look at our weapons and armour, perhaps try it on if you're about the right size, and see if this idea of violence as a fun pastime will ever take off!

what time does it finish? and is it on tomorrow?

 

Just today.

 

They usually have some kind of bonfire in the evening, so it finishes quite late, around 10 ish.
