This event is organised and/or hosted by our member, Skipton Castle.
Re-Enactment: Historia Normannis will start on Saturday, 19 August 2017 and will run for 2 Days.
The walls of Skipton castle will echo to the sound of swords and shields once again- but don't worry, it's only the re-enactors of Historia Normannis! Come and see medieval craftsmen demonstrating their trades, knights displaying their prowess, and ladies describing life as it would have been in the reign of Henry II. The castle itself will be the site of historic set-pieces, recreating the daily workings of a local medieval court, the furnishings of a Lord's bedchamber, and outside the walls, a working medieval siege weapon! A great day out for history enthusiasts and curious families alike- it promises to be an event not to be missed!
