Staying at a medieval campsite

England’s Medieval Festival 2017 promises to be the most magical event yet and will be held from 26 - 28 August. Expect realistic battles, jousting competitions, archery, music, grand parades, storytelling, authentic crafts, medieval banquets and hog roasts, drinking, shopping and general day-in-the-life of our medieval ancestors. Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex is the fairy tale setting for a totally different festival experience. Highlights include an evening torch lit procession and the infamous Mud Theatre. Wizards, jesters, knights, dragons and princesses await the kids – and adults.
