Meet soldiers, and find out what life was like for an army away from home whilst on campaign. Visit the living history camp where you can try out calligraphy; see the medieval kitchen in action; watch the weavers at work and see various examples of armour and weapons.

Don’t miss the ever popular children’s army, and the chance to form a schiltron.
