MEDIEVAL fun and games will be on offer at Forge Mill Museum over Father’s Day weekend.

The museum’s new Knight’s Tale event will give visitors a taste of what life was like in medieval times with attractions including a special knights’ encampment from The Company Ecorcheur, famous for work at Warwick Castle.

Budding lords and ladies will be able to safely practise jousting at junior knight school and a medieval storyteller will be entertaining all with tales, legends, music and children’s have-a-go knightly craft activities.

There will also be opportunities to have a closer look at swords and other medieval weaponry, plus period skills and crafts.

The Knight’s Tale takes place on Saturday, June 14 and Sunday, June 15 from 11am until 4pm.

Entry costs £2.50 for adults and £1 for children.
