Its central attraction is a re-enactment of the Battle of Tewkesbury, on part of the site of the original 1471 battlefield. Many of the participants including wives and children live as a medieval army in authentic medieval encampments for the whole weekend.

The event features a wide range of period entertainment, including music, dance and drama as well as a collection of fascinating characters from the past. These may include barber surgeons, preachers and even the odd dragon keeper. There is a children’s activity area, with period based arts and craft sessions, and an exhibition tent with displays from organisations specialising in different aspects of history.

Our busy and colourful medieval market has everything from a suit of armour or a fabulous gown to a pot of herbs or bag of sweets on sale. A wide range of caters supply high quality food and drink, including ale specially brewed for the occasion.The town centre is bustling with associated events and the streets are decorated with dozens of authentic medieval banners for the festival period. Best of all, despite its size and popularity, entry to Tewkesbury Medieval Festival is free, and its hard working volunteer directors are determined to keep it that way. There is however a small charge for parking (£5) to help meet our considerable costs.
