Step back in time to the 12th Century and life in the Welsh Marches, with Historia Normannis! Have-a-go archery, combat displays, medieval justice and fashion: the past is brought to life this Easter weekend!

Three days of living history at Raglan Castle, including fighting knights and medieval soldiers, fashion shows, cooking, singing, blacksmiths, physicians, and much more.

From powerful earls and bishops, right down to hardworking peasants, and all people in between, experience medieval life at Raglan Castle.

There'll be birds of prey displays on Sunday and Monday too (weather permitting).
