Medieval re-enactment weekend to take people back in time

Residents and visitors will be given the chance to go back in time this July as Ayscoughfee Hall plays host to a medieval re-enactment weekend, led by local group Knights of Skirbeck.

Running from 10.30am until 4pm on both Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July, the event will incorporate various display tents showing life in the medieval age, many of which people can interact with, including an armoury and a kitchen alongside live craft and weapon demonstrations.

The free historical event will take place on the South Lawn, with the backdrop of the Hall, which itself is a medieval building dating back before the line of Tudors, having been built in the 1450s.

Carrying on the medieval theme, a host of characters will be there including knights of the realm, lords, ladies, merchants, cooks and members of the town militia; all helping to create a truly immersive experience for visitors to enjoy!

Museum Manager, Julia Knight said: “We’re really proud to be able to hold such a fantastic medieval re-enactment, it’s not often you get to feel as though you’ve stepped back in time but this event is sure to help give all visitors a glimpse into what life would’ve been like if they’d been born 700 years ago!”

Knights of Skirbeck representative Dave Bedford said: “We’d like to encourage as many people as possible to come along to the event in July, there’s no tickets so you can just come down on the day and experience an immersive historical experience – see you there!”
