2019 programme to be announced but see the highlights from 2018 below!

There’s plenty to do...

...and plenty to see in and around the Castle Garden Stage – from music to
interactive theatre and from juggling jesters to our fantastic Tournament of Knights!

See fighting knights from the House of the Dragon trade blows with the House of the Lion in our
Tournament of Knights presented by Combat Through the Ages. Using sword, mace and quarter
staff, who will be victorious and win over the crowd? Join us on Saturday night for a special
fiery face-to-face combat using burning maces if you dare (weather dependent, so fingers
crossed for a dry evening!)

There’s new music too from brand new trio, Salsarello who play Medieval style with just a
hint of Latin American beats! And don’t miss the hilarious antics of beloved jester Peterkin,
the finest tomfoolery and nincompoopery in the land!

Peter Cann, our amazing theatrical fight specialist returns as Master-At-Arms to showcase
his fighting moves from the legend of Shropshire’s Wild Edric. Plus comedy abounds with
BZ Ents’s tales of famous Olde England’s heroes and villains - with the help of the younger
members of the audience!

Everyone loves a story and The Yarnsmith of Norwich will share the tale of Sir Gawain and
the Green Knight plus there’s Discover History’s fun-packed re-enactment of Welsh archers
demonstrating their prowess at Agincourt.

Finally, don’t miss the fearless Kris Katchit who brings his infamous carnival-style show The Bed o’
Nails to the Fayre too! All this plus not forgetting our friendly dancing giant, Brother Sid and our top trio of jesters, Jester James, Kris Katchit and Peterkin throughout the day around the Fayre!

New for 2018
Tom Fool, Master of Ceremonies

Everyone loves a legend and the Castle Garden will be full of them this year! The Yarnsmith of Norwich tells the tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and young visitors can help bring historic legends to life with fun, interactive shows from BZ Ents."
