In just under 4 weeks Herstmonceux Castle gates open to England’s Medieval Festival‘s 26th medieval immersive adventure. It is a weekend spectacle like no other. A unique chance to step back in time and experience the glory of days gone by. We’re been busy preparing the horses, polishing the armour, and checking the castle moat for enemies. Everything is almost ready for the longest running, most magnificent medieval celebration in history.
The fairy tale castle welcomes 15,000 time travellers to journey back to a captivating yet brutal life with over 1,000 skilled performers from as far as Germany, France, Norway & Czech Republic. This hugely popular breathtaking experience is the most authentic of its kind in the UK, with over 100 traditional craft and travelling traders, 7 unique stages, and the only ‘messy mud theatre’ in the UK. England’s Medieval Festival is an unforgettable way for families to discover the magic of the past and become part of history.
