UP COMING EVENT

OCTOBER

21st & 22nd Rusty Bodkins – Medieval Archer 

Join Rusty as he explains the life of a medieval archer, his weapons and training, then have a go yourself and see how well you do! (Small charge for ‘have a go’)

Saturday 20th October - Saturday 3rd November

Each day we will be offering guided tours of a slightly ghostly nature. We have some unusual 'visitors' who make their way into the castle on a very regular basis and like to keep our staff company from time to time. The best people to tell you all about these visitors are the guides who have seen and heard these things whilst at work. Don't miss out if you are visiting us as these tours are very limited. 

Every day from Saturday 20th October until Saturday 3rd November there will be 2 tours (12 o'clock and 4pm) you will need to register on arrival if you would like to book onto a tour. Suitable for all ages. 

Plastic spiders, cobwebs and such things will not feature at all. We can't guarantee you won't get the odd shiver though or the occasional hair may stand up on the back of your neck and we would recommend you wear flat shoes. 

DECEMBER

Saturday 15th Christmas Concert 7pm - 9pm 

An evening of festive music in the glorious setting of the King’s Hall with The Berwick Concert Band. Mulled Wine & Mince Pies served in the Medieval Kitchen during the interval. Adults £14, Children £5
