Details: Celebrate our green and pleasant land and immerse yourself in the story of England at the most action-packed St George’s Day celebration in the country. Join us for a weekend of shows, battles, games, performances and activities culminating in England’s most legendary battle. Cheer on gallant St George as he mounts his mighty steed and takes on his fiery green nemesis in the ultimate, dramatic showdown. Gasp as lances shatter in legendary medieval jousts and marvel at the splendour of an imperial Roman infantry display with two Roman cavalry riders. Meet a cheeky jester as he flaps, falls and fumbles and watch a display of medieval weaponry. There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained in our family zone with junior jousting and the chance to become a heroic knight in our Children’s Melee! We’ve also got have a go circus skills, Victorian games, a WW1 obstacle course, and interactive music workshops. Or, let your little ones try out their skills at the Fool School and see if they’ve got what it takes to become St. George’s fool. Throughout the day, wander through our living history encampments and discover what life was like for the English over 500 years ago including the Romans, Elizabethans and during the English Civil War as well as our new Normans encampment. Watch an interactive family performance of a mini Victorian adventure about Queen Victoria’s life or enjoy a gallop through the history of women’s horse riding from side saddles to tweed.
