Come and see the Free Men of Gwent in their camp on Good Friday and Easter Saturday - for the chance to explore and chat to people about their various crafts.

At different times throughout the day knights and squires will be honing their skills and archers will be at the butts loosing arrows.

Talks will take place in the main arena exploring:

  • Armour and how it's worn, and how weapons are used against an armoured knight
  • How archers were feared by all on the battlefield, and how to shoot a knight
  • Clothing and how it was used to show status and wealth
  • Dressing an archer.
