Open to the Public -- Return with us to Bosworth Field, where the Lancastrians and the Yorkists decided the fate of the Crown of England! While war rages, there is also the arts, crafts, sciences, and activities common to the Middle Ages. From miles around, people come to fight, to trade, and to engage in the activities and festivities. A wonderful time is guaranteed for all!
Great for newcomers, this event focuses on activities that might have occurred in war, and in peace-time. Townspeople and visitors share the sights, sounds and smells during a typical day. It costs nothing to look, aka, there is no admission fee.
Admission: $0 Feast: $7/person, max feast = 80*
Come and behold the wonders of war and peace in the Middle Ages! Need help with what to wear? We can help! Contact the Gold Key.
*As customary for this event, feasts spots may be sponsored for newcomers so they can fully enjoy the day. Sponsors are welcome to pay for one more feast spot than they need to contribute.
Many artisans teach their craft; many sell their creations. Here is the chance to step back to a simpler time when hands did most of the skilled work. This is your chance to watch, ask questions, learn and explore the current Middle Ages.
Visit the local artisans for a sampling of medieval workmanship. These artists enjoy learning more about their craft as well as teaching it to others. Some hands-on workshops will be held.
There will be a Fiber Solar.
Watch the tournaments. Meet the artisans. Shop. Try a dance or two. There is much to see and do! Check the schedule for the day's activities.
All visiting dignitaries are asked to confirm their attendance in advance, if possible.
Have you ever fletched an arrow or made a bow string? What about leatherworking or calligraphy? On this day, there will be many opportunities to see/try new things. Check the schedule for times and locations.
