Birds of Prey

Saturday 8th to Wednesday 12th August 

Witness an exceptional display of medieval falconry, worthy of entertaining the old Earls of Northumberland, from two of the country’s finest historical falconers.  Combined with enchanting storytelling and inspiring history, which is sure to thrill and entertain the whole family!

With an extensive knowledge and a passion for historical interpretation, Raphael Falconry’s performances represent an authentic reproduction of falconry from the medieval period.

Jesting with Zooted

Saturday 8th - Wednesday 12th August

Experience fun filled family entertainment, suitable for Aristocracy of Northumberland, with this eccentric duo’s side-splitting theatrical performance of visual and verbal comedy!

Harking from a period when comedy was uncomplicated and well, let’s say… simple, Baldwin the
Fool and Godfrey Pugh never fail to delight audiences with their brilliant blend of medieval mischief and slapstick comedy. These jesters replicate entertainment as it would have been performed to the old courts of days gone by, when chivalry was the order of the day and valiant knights fought one another to defend their honour!

Witness medieval mischief and wondrous circus tricks, performed by this highly interactive and comical act, which is bound to have you laughing, cheering and even weeing (don’t worry, it’s just a sound effect you’ll be making during the show)!
