Discover soothing and courtly entertainment of a medieval style, amidst the spectacular setting of one of Northumberland’s, as well as England’s, finest castles.

Experience and relish the gentle wandering tones of medieval music, as you explore on of the UK’s finest cultural heritage sites. The rich interweaving of strings is one of Trouvere Minstrels signature sounds, transporting you back to the medieval period!

Trouvere Minstrels invite you to joyously discover their re-interpretation of traditional songs and melodies, based upon countless hours of historical research and their own personal musical experience, performed seamlessly upon their historic instruments. They are even known on occasions to teach nearby young peasants how to play their amazing array of medieval style instruments!

So why not visit Alnwick Castle this season for some fun filled family entertainment and dance to the Trouvere’s beat, all whilst discovering music as it would have been performed in the great courts and halls of the Middle Ages.
