Medieval day search for best re-enactment

threekinghamThreekingham will be transformed into a medieval village next month when it hosts the Medieval Living History competition.

Visitors will be able to walk through 500 years of history when top medieval re-enactment groups battle it out for the title of Best Living History Group 2010/11.

The event, on Saturday, September 4, will demonstrate the sights and sounds of life in medieval times. As well as the re-enactments, there will be arena displays, 21st-century food, a beer tent and free parking.

To mark the end of the day, a concert will be held in St Peter’s Church by the Fenland Consort at 7.30pm.

The consort will be playing a variety of music by 17th and 18th century composers.

Gates open at 10am and admission costs £5 per adult, with entry free for accompanied children.

The results of the competition will be announced at 5pm and the gates will close at 6pm.

There will be no admission charge for the concert. However, there will be a retiring collection.

All proceeds will go to St Peter ad Vincula Church, Threekingham.
