Medieval May at Bolsover Castle

Visitors to English Heritage’s Bolsover Castle will be catapulted into the medieval throughout the month of May with the ultimate in knight time events.

The dramatic scenes of a castle under attack will take place at Siege! on Sunday 24 and Monday 25.

English Heritage will step back in time with an event to catapult all the family into the awesome spectacle of a medieval castle under attack.

Visitors can witness the chivalry and drama first-hand as the Siege unfolds throughout the day, before the awe-inspiring combat display that takes place at 3pm each day.

Complete with medieval music, children’s mock battles, stories, riddles and jest – there is something for all the family.

For children inspired by the heroic knights, they have the opportunity over the half-term to become knights for the day themselves and hone their skills for the battlefield to impress family members at Knight Time! on Tuesday 26 to Friday 29.

The medieval castle knight will welcome children to this tantalising event where they can listen to stories like no other.

Plus, on the non-event weekends there is the ever popular cavalier horsemanship displays, where visitors can step foot into the country’s oldest working riding house and enjoy displays of cavaliers in training.
