Date : Saturday 8 September, 2018
Location : Bishop's Palace
Shake off that September “back-to-school” feeling with a trip to enjoy a day of Medieval Falconry at The Bishop’s Palace in Wells on Saturday 8th September from 10am.
Tony from Raptor Care is an expert in falconry and in training the birds with skills that have been used since Medieval times. He will bring a selection of his finest falcons and owls to show off their marvellous moves in front of visitors on the South Lawn.
Suitable for all ages, the flying displays will take place twice a day and will show visitors how these magnificent birds would have been used in Medieval times, and by whom.
In between the flying displays, visitors will have the chance to get up close with some of the birds and handle these wonderful creatures, whilst finding out all about them from their handlers.
This event is included in standard admission to the Palace & Gardens.
