Prepare For Battle

29 Apr - 01 May 2017

Call your banners, sharpen your broadsword and saddle your steed as a group of brave and daring knights invade Alnwick Castle! Demonstrating how chivalry and medieval combat really worked, this is a weekend to remember. Esperance!

This Bank Holiday weekend will be one to remember at Alnwick as a troupe of brave and daring knights invade the castle from 29th April until 1st May.

Join the knights on the Outer Bailey of Alnwick this weekend to find out how chivalry and medieval combat really worked - six hundred years ago. A true expert on chainmail armour through the ages, Nick Checksfield, will be on hand all weekend to show you how to create, conserve and repair your armour. You can also watch magical, live English longbow demonstrations with entertaining master archer Andy Rice.
