Living History Medieval Weekend

March 29 @ 10:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm

On Palm Sunday, March 29th 1461, arguably the largest and bloodiest battle on English soil took place, fought by an estimated 50,000 men continuing throughout the day and into the night. Among the combatants was Lord John Scrope from Bolton Castle, and a contingent of men at arms and archers from Wensleydale.

Our ‘Living Historians’ are in residence at the castle to talk about the battle, and  its significance in the Wars of the Roses and the future of England’s monarchy.

Come and try on some of the arms and armour and have a go at archery. Who would you have fought for, and would you have made the grade as a Medieval soldier?
