The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Webteam: August 2015
Chain-mailed and adrenalin-fuelled, massed ranks of armoured knights meet head on at Beeston Castle this weekend. Feel the heat of battle as four teams fight with clubs and shields in this contest of skill and strength. Tensions will rise, alliances will be made and broken but only one team will triumph.
Revel in the atmosphere of the encampment as it buzzes with the activity of everyday medieval life. Enjoy merry music while your budding young knights test their bravery on the field and burn off energy in battle drills.
