Be sure not to miss the Canon fire opening and closing ceremonies or the weapons and armour talks. Sir Justyn brings history to life and appears to have an answer for even the tricky questions.
The Storyteller extraordinaire Lord Stephen of Landsborough loves inviting you to join him as he recounts the stories of travels and travellers, knights, kings and legends. Find out about princesses, castles, battles and medieval magic.
