Commencing in April and running through until December, Wales’ most famous castles and abbeys will provide dramatic backdrops for a bumper bonanza of plays,pageants and battles. For a great day out on your family holiday the Bank Holiday weekend of Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 May will see the Knights Hospitaller make their camp in Beaumaris Castle on Anglesey. Later in the year, for two days only, Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August, Beaumaris will open its gates and welcome visitors back to the Age of Chivalry with Lion Rampant et al. when daring Knights fought for their Ladies and their honour, when the clash of steel filled the air and the battlements rang with the cheers of supporters.

Alongside the battles will be a Medieval Festival where the poorer folk of the area will be going about their work, blacksmithing, leather working and woodcarving, weaving and spinning, cooking the daily meal, or even just lounging around playing Nine Men’s Morris. Here’s an opportunity for visitors to Wales to steep themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of a time when life in Wales was very different from today. There’s another chance to follow the knights and cheer them on at Caernarfon Castle on Saturday 27, Sunday 28 and Monday 29 August where the overall champion will be decided in a fierce battle of clashing steel. This colourful and exciting 3-day event is certain to get pulses racing and hearts beating!
