Very exciting news here at Hornby, we are hosting the Sir John Savile Household on the 27 – 28 June 2015, they are a historical re-enactment society and they will be here for two days.
Come and experience life during the 15 century, Wars of the Roses.
See how Sir John’s men were trained in the arts of warfare – including the mighty English warbow, see his spearmen armed with the feared English Bill and marvel at his guns, the pinnacle of military technology!
The dances of the time will be performed by the household and join in if you wish. The camp will also have members of the group in full period dress so there will be chances to learn about the clothing, fashions and status.
We will be opening the gardens as usual and there will be refreshments on site, as well as a pottery and ceramic exhibition and historical talks in the castle drawing room.
Put the date in your diary and come along!
