Joust having fun at Forge Mill Museum

BUDDING knights in shining armour can brush up on their jousting skills next week at Forge Mill Museum by joining its Knight’s School.

The ‘Knight’s Tale’ event on June 13=14 will include a junior Knight’s School, medieval storytelling and the opportunity to visit a medieval knight’s encampment.

Re-enactment group, ‘Company Ecorcheur’ will set up the authentic medieval knight’s encampment for the weekend for the public to wander around, inspect soldier’s weapons and armour and find out what everyday life would have been like hundreds of years ago.

Younger visitors can learn the art of the joust and also dress up as little lords and ladies.

The Yarnsmith of Norwich will also be on hand to entertain visitors throughout the day, telling fantastic tales and stories.

Museum Assistant Hannah Dixon, said: “This event has something for every generation to enjoy and take part in so pop along for a fun, educational, family day out”.

The event runs from 11am to 4pm both days and entry is £3 for adults and £1 for children.
