Beaumaris Medieval Festival

Bank Holiday Fun

Bank Holiday Fun

A jam packed weekend of activities this Bank Holiday!

Knights will do battle to conquer the land, jesters and musicians will entertain, and the townsfolk will demonstrate how life was in medieval Wales. There will be demonstrations of medieval life, living history, crafts, games, armoury talks, archery displays, sword fighting, music and more. 

The chapel will play host to musicians who will play and sing traditional Welsh and medieval music on their instruments. 

There will be birds of prey to see - you can learn how these birds were used in medieval times, and there will be a chance to hold one of these magnificent birds. Children will have the opportunity to make owl masks, learn about the birds and even dissect an owl pellet. 

Dragons will roam the castle, and you can even join in the dragon land speed record! 

Jesters will entertain and get up to mischief, and perform some fantastic skills and dangerous stunts. 

And there will also be craft and food stalls offering varied gifts and refreshments throughout the day.
