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

Situated in the Inner Bailey...

...the Hands on History tent is jam-packed with a wide range of games and activities (including Medieval games, castle-building and brass rubbing).

You’ll also find Kris Katchit’s Circus Skills workshops here too. Plus why not make something special to take home? The Medieval Spellwright, Jean Atkin, will write you a tailored spell to
take home just for you!

You can also make your own piece of Medieval Icon Art with Kate Johnston! Come and create a
medieval style self portrait and turn yourself into a Saint!

The Tournament of Knights!


Fighting knights return to the Fayre!

Four Knights separated into two houses, Lion and Dragon, will compete against each other with sword, mace and quarter staff in combat, to discover which house will reign supreme in Ludlow Castle’s brand new tournament!

Who will be victorious, the brave and chivalrous House of the Lion, led by Sir Edward Baldwin with his faithful bannerman Sir William Varde? Or the treacherous House of the Dragon, captained by the vile Black Knight, Sir Robert de’Courtney with his
bannerman the Mercenary Knight? Watch the battles and find out!
