Come and take part in Criccieth Castle's Knight School!

Visit the armourer's tent, and examine the weapons and armour that the castle’s garrison used to protect themselves from attack. Can you handle a sword and shield, and are you strong enough to wear a helmet?

Learn what it takes to become a squire and how to progress to knighthood in the Middle Ages.

Then participate in the Mini Warriors Battle show - have-a-go foam sword fun for all the family. Learn some skills and then ... who will win - kids or adults!?
