    Medieval dining is the root of many of our eating customs and table manners today. Come and hear from food historian Nick Trustram Eve of The Copper Pot how a medieval dinner was conducted and where many of our table manners originated. Why shouldn’t you put your elbows on the table and what did Marie Antoinette really mean by “let them eat cake”? Try some medieval delights and prepare to entertain your friends in a truly medieval fashion.

    Outdoor Programme Event

    The Outdoor Programme daily ticket gives you access to everything on the festival's massive Outdoor Programme.

    We have talks on the IPGL and History Hit Outdoor Stages, the Living History encampments and static displays, Speaker's Corner talks, performances from the History Tellers and others, live music, two bars, the Emporium, book shops and numerous cafes and food stalls. Anyone with an Outdoor Programme ticket can access up to twenty-five different scheduled events on any one day, so it is truly great value.

    For those wishing to experience The Trench, Sword School and Children's Creative History events, these are ticketed separately and need to be pre-booked. Rides on the Vintage Fairground are payable at the ride.

    Tickets to individual events in the Hiscox and Smith & Williamson tents also provide access to the Outdoor Programme on that particular day (1 person per ticket).
