Medieval Weekend Promises Live Combat and Expert Re-enactments at The Bishop’s Palace

The Bishop’s Palace will be bringing the summer holidays to a dramatic close over the August Bank Holiday weekend by joining forces with medieval re-enactors and combat specialists Bowlore Medieval.

Encamped in the stunning ruins of the Great Hall on 26th, 27th and 28th August visitors will discover the historical re-enactment group and medieval weapons experts who will be hosting lively displays throughout the day, with demonstrations and choreographed combat.

Longbows will be used as well as pallaxes, dane hammers, alchion and langmesser to name but a few!

The Black Dog, Bowlore’s weapons and armour tent, will also give visitors to the Palace the chance to get a glimpse of medieval life and members of the Bowlore troupe will be on hand throughout the day to share their expertise and answer questions.

Entrance to the Medieval Weekend is included with general admission to The Bishop’s Palace and Gardens, including 12 months of re-entry (some event days excluded).
