History Days

About

History Days will be an opportunity for children of all ages to meet historical characters including a Norman knight, pirate and Palaeolithic man.

Activities such as have-a-go archery, mini catapults and a craft tent will spread across the upper grounds and a falconer and story teller will demonstrate their dazzling crafts.

The thrilling Kids Battles will allow little ones to try their hand at wielding soft-play weaponry and skirmish with their friends.

Alliums are part of the humble onion family and are a firm favourite of the nation's gardeners. These elaborate flowers tower over other varieties throughout the garden, some reaching up to five feet tall. Who would expect such glory from an onion?

Over the late May bank holiday weekend, 25-27 May, Arundel Castle in West Sussex will host Raiders of the 15th Century: England vs. France. The thrilling three-day siege event will treat visitors to a portrayal of a French raiding party engaging with English forces beneath the mighty Castle.

Although there was no historical siege Arundel Castle in the 15th century, this three-day will demonstrate the importance of artillery in taking a Castle with medieval gunnery demonstrations and two thrilling skirmishes each day.

Aside from the smoke and noise of the battlefield, tented encampments covering the upper grounds of the Castle will be filled with 15th century crafts, cooking, storytelling, and weapons and armour displays
