Summertime of Festivals and more

The best time to enjoy a festival is during the summer: 1066 Country has a reputation of ‘dressing up’ in style with our events and as a destination we’re very proud of that.

It’s the festivals that set us apart and it’s what keeps visitors coming back to 1066 Country year after year.

Listed below are a few taking place throughout the summer – so enjoy music, performances, art, sword fighting - this is just a snapshot of the fantastic selection of festivals here.  For more, use the search bar on this page to the right.
