I’ve done a little post about Scotland’s Festival of History over at this lovely Scotland travel blog. Huzzah!

Is that right? Huzzah? My friends seem to think so.

I admit that I don’t know an awful lot about medieval festivals as I’ve never been to one, but this one looks like a cracker. It’s got battle re-enactments, archery, falconry and so much more. Best of all, a child’s ticket costs £1. A quid! Nothing costs a quid anymore. I’d be going: 1. If August wasn’t reserved for band stuff and 2. If I had kids.

Lanark Medieval Festival 2009

Look! If I went I could take pictures like that. I didn’t take this picture, this guy did.

Other Medieval festivals in England include:

Tewkesbury Medieval Festival

Colchester Medieval Festival (and Oyster Fayre)

and the big one: England’s Medieval Festival at Hurstmonceux Castle. Jousting! Jesters! Dammit that’s in August as well!
