Arundel Castle is giving its visitors the chance to take part in ancient revelries during its lively Living History Days this summer.

The events on June 2 and August 2 and 9 invite junior visitors to immerse themselves in the history of Arundel through a number of fun and engaging activities including have-a-go archery and have-a-go fencing.

Visitors can also try their hand at medieval skittles during the Living History Days, with a full scale medieval skittle alley installed on the upper grounds of the castle.

As well as experiencing historical pastimes, visitors will come face to face with a host of characters from years gone by including a Norman Knight, a Medieval Surgeon - and even a Lady Pirate!

For keen history fans, these events will offer the opportunity to try on replica armour, witness a range of different crafts from the past including naal binding, a medieval form of knitting, learn the art of medieval writing and enjoy thrilling falconry showcases.

Castle Manager Bryan McDonald comments: “Arundel Castle was founded in 1067, so it goes without saying that we have a rich history to explore - as does our surrounding area.

“Our Living History Days bring that history to life in a captivating, engaging and enthralling way, for visitors of all ages.”
