Castle Siege at Arundel Castle this May Bank Holiday

Be transported back to the 15th century at Arundel Castle this May!

26 May 2018 – 28 May 2018 | Visit website

It’s going to be a May Bank Holiday to remember at Arundel Castle, as a French raiding party will seize the Castle in an action-packed three-day event, taking place from Saturday 26 – Monday 28 May.
 
Visitors will be transported back to 1474, the time of Edward IV – The Earl of Arundel is away with the king and the French have taken the opportunity to wrest the Castle from the grasp of the English.
 
The Siege will showcase authentic 15th century combat techniques, combining hand-to-hand combat with awe-inspiring cannon displays, with a series of plot twists throughout the weekend. The outcome isn’t set in stone either, with even the participants unsure who will emerge victorious until the final battle.
 
Away from the smoke and noise of the battlefield, a tented encampment will be set up across the Castle’s Upper Lawns, with all the sights and sounds of 15th century life.
 
Castle Siege takes place at Arundel Castle, Saturday 26 – Monday 28 May 2018.
