Colourful encampments will provide a rolling programme of entertainment throughout each day from fire-breathing and flying to all the fun of the festival with Punch and Judy.

There will also be an authentic historic market to wander around and children and adults can watch and take part in a host of other period activities including an interactive children’s theatre, mock children’s battle, even a dragon themed puppet show and of course the mischievous jester

Adult weekend tickets cost £22.50 each, while children can attend for £13.50, or for one day’s entry the adult price is £15 and children’s admission is £9.20.
