Living history

PEOPLE of all ages are invited to go back in time and experience a taste of medieval life at Wallington this weekend.

See knights in action, wander through their middle ages camp, have a go at archery, try on chainmail and helmets or have your fortune told.

Discover all about medieval culture and history, including when the Border Reivers roamed the area, see traditional crafts being demonstrated and have a go at medieval games and activities.

There will be shows and battles throughout the day and young ones can even join the Children’s Army to defend Wallington against reiving Scots.

The activities will be running between 11am and 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. Normal admission charges apply.
