About

This August Caldicot Castle welcomes the SCA Principality of Insulae Draconis to the castle where they will be indulging their love of historical hobbies. 

You may see members practicing equestrian games, pageantry, armoured combat tournaments, archery and medieval craft skills.

Whilst this is a private booking (visitors will not be able to take part), members of the public are very welcome to come along and watch. The castle tearoom will be open as usual.
