Battle Medieval Fayre
Battle Medieval Fayre is a two-day family event based upon the old idea of a Fayre – somewhere to meet your friends, entertain your family, amuse your children, eat, drink and buy good things!
The Fayre offers stalls, games and entertainment throughout both days. The entertainment is a mix of juggling, jesting, and general tomfoolery. There will be talks by Hands on History and an opportunity to see and try on mediaeval amour and weaponry. Battle’s very own Knights of the Realm will be strutting their stuff with boo-ing and cheering to encourage them in their chivalrous endeavours. In addition 1066 Falconry will be there and 1066 Lacemakers will be demonstrating the delicate art of lacemaking. There will be potters offering an opportunity for young ones to try throwing a pot, and games and facepainting for the young.
Entry is Free.
At 1pm on Monday the May Queen and her entourage (accompanied by the Section 5 Drummers) will process down Battle High Street. After the crowning of the May Queen at about 1.30 the children will demonstrate how maypoling should be done.
