Get ready to go back six centuries to 1418, a time of medieval mischief, pongy peasants and nasty knights. Put your family in the stocks and throw cabbages at them with Mistress Margaret as she regales you with tales of woe and plague. Meet Jack the medieval mercenary and see how he was wounded at the Battle of Agincourt. Matthew will teach you how to fight knights or imaginary dragons so you can join the castle guard.
Meet Hartlebury Castle’s very own Medieval Mischief duo, who will be leading games and competitions including jousting and catapult the castle! Children can also make coat of arms shields and royal crowns to take home.
Jack the mercenary and Mistress Margaret are portrayed by Matthew Ward and Gill Fraser Lee of HistoryNeedsYou. Matthew appeared in three series of the award-winning tv show ‘Horrible Histories’, so you can expect lots of laughs and maybe the odd bit of horrible!
