Bowlore Medieval take over the Palace for August Bank Holiday Weekend 26th-28th 10am-6pm

Finish off the school holidays in style at The Bishop’s Palace in Wells from Saturday 26th August until Monday 28th August with entertainment from the larger than life Medieval re-enacters of Bowlore.

Head along to find out more about what life was like when the Palace was first built, watch thrilling weaponry displays and even try your hand at archery and sword-fighting if you’re feeling brave!

Activities and demonstrations on offer throughout the Bank Holiday Weekend include: longbow, crossbow, weapons demonstrations, combat displays, sword lessons, historical talks, battlefield medicine, hands-on weapon and armour displays, medieval tented encampment, have-a-go archery with lifesize 3D animal targets and thrilling fire-arrows.

The group will set up camp on the South Lawn of the Palace for the whole weekend and they’ll be ready to answer your questions, help you try on some hugely heavy chainmail or even introduce you to their tiny owl!

You’re sure to find a combination to entertain and astonish any age and maybe even a new skill to learn!
Included in admission and under 5’s GO FREE.
