Join Erwyd le Fol, the Conwy Jester, at the castle every Friday during the school Summer holidays, for some medieval family fun!

Conwy’s very own resident jester, Erwyd le Fol, will be returning to the castle with his show this Summer. Erwyd is the longest serving jester in the town's history, and his blend of juggling and comedy is guaranteed to entertain audiences of all ages.

This year, Erwyd will be joined by the bard himself, Cyfarwydd Cymru, the Storyteller of Wales, who will regale you with ancient tales of Welsh dragons, fairies, and magical creatures long forgotten.

As you explore the castle towers, you’ll find our wizard, Jay Gatling. He’s always got a trick or two up his sleeve that will leave you both amazed and amused. A show not to be missed!

Also within the castle is our wand workshop. Here budding young princes, princesses, knights, and wizards can create their own wand to take home with them.

Outside, you’ll find our jester skills workshop where you can try your hand at juggling, plate spinning, hula hooping, walking on stilts, plus much more.

And, for those youngsters who wish to train to defend the castle, you can have a go on our child-friendly archery range.

Summer at Conwy Castle has never been so good!
