Medieval mayhem comes to Caerlaverock Castle
19 July 2011
Medieval Mayhem is taking place at Caerlaverock Castle from Thursday 28th to Sunday 31st July from 12:00 noon until 4:00 pm
Caerlaverock Castle, a dramatic-looking medieval stronghold situated near Dumfries, has a moat, twin-towered gatehouse and imposing battlements, and is always a favourite with children.
With a range of exciting activities including junior jousting, sword-play, archery and crossbow shooting, story-telling with tales of legendary outlaws, heroic quests and thrilling battles, Medieval Mayhem promises to be great day out for children and adults alike.
Gareth Cheeseman, Events Manager for Historic Scotland said: “Keeping children entertained can often be a bit of a battle over the summer holidays, but our Medieval Mayhem activities at Caerlaverock Castle should keep everyone entertained with junior jousting, sword-play, archery and crossbow shooting.”
The cost of the event is included in the admission price of £5.50 for adults, £4.40 for concessions and £3.30 for children. Admission is free for Historic Scotland members.
