Magna Carta Festival in Clare Saturday 13th June, Clare Castle Country Park

 Bunting in Clare

Magna Carta Festival in Clare Saturday 13th June, Clare Castle Country Park

The town is already festooned with bunting in de Clare colours - yellow with 3 red chevrons. The procession begins at 11am, led by a jester and drummer, with dozens of children in costume, banners made by local schools, and the High Sheriff of Suffolk.

At 12 noon the festival (free to all) opens for an afternoon of events--the Medieval Combat Society has archery, dancing and fighting demonstrations in their tented village. There will be many craft stalls, children's games based on medieval themes, a hog roast and a tent with Magna Carta Ale from Nethergate Brewery.  Even a medieval Pimm's tent.

Clare celebrates Magna Carta because two de Clares were among the rebels who forced King John to agree to it in 1215, and then they served on the Committee of 25 enforcers. Clare is a member of the Magna Carta Barons Association, and the Festival is widely supported by the whole community.

There are even a few tickets left for the Medieval Banquet on Friday, 12 June, £30.  Ring Margaret Godwin at 01787 278243. The banquet will include a performance of the very early play 'Pride of Life', and much more. Come in costume.

See magnacartafestival.org for more details.
