Hail and Well Met!
Welcome to England's Medieval Festival at Herstmonceux Castle....or maybe that should be welcome back, because for many visitors the Festival has become a regular annual event - just as it is for many of the medieval re-enactors and tradespeople participating. Even so, no two Festivals are alike: new faces appear; displays get bigger and more spectacular; and the number of visitors increases each year.
Work to put the Festival together is a year-round process. The goal is always to create something unique; a real one-of-a-kind event with a very special blend of history, spectacle and fun for the whole family. What we want you to experience and if you're a regular visitor what you've enjoyed in the past, is something that just can't be experienced elsewhere.
England's Medieval Festival is the largest of its kind in the UK. Our name gives an important reassurance of quality and it means that you can always count on a warm welcome and a day out like no other.
You will meet our highly dedicated staff throughout the day, recognised by their distinctive blue and gold costumes.

See you at the Festival
