15th Century Raiders
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
