Medieval Weekend Returns to The Bishop’s Palace
28th-30th August 2021 10am-5pm
The Bishop’s Palace in Wells has announced that its popular Medieval Weekend will return in August 2021.
Taking place over the Bank Holiday weekend, last year’s event was cancelled due to Covid, but this year, it will return to delight locals and tourists alike.
Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in 800 years of history and get into the medieval spirit as they discover the historical re-enactment and medieval weapons experts, Bowlore encamped amongst the stunning ruins of the Great Hall.
There will be displays throughout each day with demonstrations and choreographed combat with longbows, pallaxes, Dane hammer, Falchion and Langmesser, to name just a few!
“The Black Dog”, Bowlore’s weapons and armour tent can be visited to get a glimpse of medieval life, and members of the Bowlore troupe will be on hand throughout each day to share their expertise and to answer questions.
Entrance to the Medieval Weekend is included with any valid entrance ticket/membership to The Bishop’s Palace.
