Show report: Beaumaris Medieval Festival – 29th-31st August 2015

Cardiff Castle Garrison were thrilled to be invited up to Anglesey this August Bank Holiday to be part of Beaumaris Castle’s Medieval Festival. We showcased a full living history camp, with weapons and armour, cooking and crafts, along with providing have-a-go archery for the public. We had an amazing time, and it was wonderful being able to meet so many other medieval re-enactment groups who were part of this event.

Great bank holiday weekend as part of ‘Troubled Times’: a Plantagenet Events show at Cosmeston Medieval Village in the Vale of Glamorgan. We set up a living history camp with various other medieval groups, and, despite some problems with the weather on Saturday and the condition of the ground, had a really successful show. Garrison displayed various crafts in and around the village, cooked authentic food, helped with a barber-surgeon injury display, and took part in a combat display with several other groups. Wonderful weekend and thanks so much to everyone who attended.
