Take part in medieval pursuits including archery and axe throwing and visit the Medieval Village and witness authentic crafts of olde including smithing, weaving, flour making and a whole lot more. Eden Falconry will be here with their beautiful birds of prey and make sure to explore the Castle and grounds to learn all about Hedingham’s 900-year-long history.

Refuel at one of the food stalls, serving a variety of hot and cold fayre, and browse some lovely artisan merchant stalls for a memento of the day. A unique and exciting day out for the whole family!
