Battle of Shrewsbury Medieval Weekend Festival 2021
Took place on 24th & 25th July 2021 and was free to attend!
We travelled back in time to medieval Shropshire and saw the sights and sounds of everyday life leading up to the battle. We had over 250 reenactors from all over the country (Scotland to Devon) attending this year's anniversary weekend including horses!

During this great family day out we saw knights in armour and archers preparing for battle, living history including traditional crafts and cookery. We also enjoyed watching terrifying jousting matches, live Battle reenactments and tried our hand at many historical activities.

There was a market area selling all manner of wares, plus local crafts, organisations and much more. Each day ended with the Battle of Shrewsbury itself where you could choose sides of the rebel army or the King himself.
What a fantastic FREE day out for all the family! Battlefield 1403 Farm shop & cafe was open as usual alongside our new play area and ice cream kiosk!
