Soldiers through the Ages

"SOLDIERS THROUGH THE AGES" returns to Castle Rising family day out, with great action, sights, sounds and smells through the ages.

Living history groups from across the country set up military encampments all around the castle site, so visitors are never certain of what is around the next corner! It might be Vikings, or Wellington's Redcoat army, or even Queen Boudicca!

For the first time, we have 20th Century conflict represented at the event. Soldiers from the Great War 1914-18 and World War 2 1939-45 will be certain to welcome you back into 'their' time.

Knights of Honour

The Knights of Honour is a re-enactment group portraying the period of the Hundred Years War.

We are a friendly, energetic group that prides itself in delivering a high-quality show both in the arena and out.

Our arena demonstrations cover weaponry and armour, as well as a range of exciting hand to hand fighting techniques. Come along and cheer our knights, armichures and squires as they battle each other to win honour and acclaim (and the winner's purse).

We share our passion for history outside the arena too, with our displays of a full a living history encampment featuring the recreation and demonstration of a wide variety of ancient skills including fire lighting and candle making, historic food preparation, blacksmithing, some archery displays and clothing talks of the age.
