Where: Framlingham Castle, Suffolk
This May Bank Holiday (Sun 1 – Mon 2 May) English Heritage will be recreating the famous Siege of Framlingham Castle from within the castle walls in the 800th anniversary year. Visitors will be transported back to 1216 when King John of England arrived at Framlingham, demanding the surrender of the Castle.
An event to catapult all the family into the awesome spectacle of a castle under Norman attack, families can watch as the castle defenders prepare the garrison of men at arms, archers and even a mounted knight to defy the King in honour of the Castle.
Witness the chivalry and drama first-hand as the Siege unfolds throughout the day. Visitors can pick sides before the awe-inspiring combat display hurtles into action! Cheer on the mighty army of men at arms and archers, and enjoy the thrill as they take part in a nail-biting battle, in a final demonstration of their skill, agility and strength.
Complete with medieval music, stories, and jest – there is something for all the family. Little ones will love training to be a Medieval knight during the Children’s battle. Visitors can even watch the action from up high on the wall walk, as well as admire the magnificent view of the surrounding countryside.
