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

There will be a market area selling all manner of wares, plus local crafts, organisations and much more. Each day will end with the Battle of Shrewsbury itself where you can 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 will be open as usual alongside the children's play area and ice cream kiosk!
