Leatherhead Medieval Festival
This event is on 21 Sep 2019 11:00am
Leatherhead Swan Centre, , KT22 8AH
For one day only, step back in time to the medieval town of Leatherhead. This medieval themed festival includes battling knights, music, arts, crafts, and a chance to ‘punish’ locals in the pillory! Come in fancy dress to take part in the procession.
The finale to our 25th anniversary Heritage Open Day celebrations in and around Leatherhead will be our medieval themed festival in the town centre.
Witness battling knights take to the stage with a whirlwind display of flashing swords, flails, maces and axes. But who will triumph in the end?
Turn up in fancy dress to participate in the knight’s procession and perhaps even win the fancy dress competition. Alternatively, be part of the crowd to watch this incredible spectacle and enjoy the street market.
There will also be opportunities for your little ones to:
- Follow our competition trail;
- Experience the dress up corner;
- Make crowns, helmets or headbands;
- Hear tales of times gone by.
