The lord of Camlann invites you to attend the 32nd anniversary of his summer village festivals, all with theatre, knightly combat, music, crafts, archery, minstrels, and victuals. Come to Somersetshire, ancient realm of Arthur the king, as the morning trumpet & charter proclamation open the village gates upon the colorful world of Chaucer’s England in 1376. The pace is leisurely: everything does not happen at once. The scale is small and lets you leave behind the hectic 21st century. Swords-master Demonstrations, Long Bow Archery Demonstrations, Minstrels and Crafters, plus games and sheep petting for young and old.
