Summer in Lincolnshire

Back in Time at Bolingbroke Castle

Aug 12
12th August 2023 - 13th August 2023

Be transported back in time to the 14th Century for a weekend of family fun with The Plantagenets at Bolingbroke Castle this summer in Lincolnshire. 

Bolingbroke Castle will be transported back to the 14th Century with “The Plantagenets” and friends this summer in Lincolnshire, who will recreate the pageantry, excitement and action of medieval combat.

Witness fully armoured knights as they display chivalry and courage. Archers will demonstrate the use of the longbow too, with lots of family fun opportunities for you to join in with dancing and squire training.

Live demonstrations of blacksmithing, falconry, cookery, archery and combat, are taking place through the weekend too -  it’s sure to be the talk of the Royal Court!
