Lincoln Castle goes back in time

War of the Roses: Lincoln Castle is holding a tribute to the infamous war this month.

The Lincoln Castle will be taking a step back in time to host a re-enactment of the War of the Roses era later in the month, and visitors are encouraged to join in.

This event, by historical acting company Livery and Maintenance, will allow visitors to see what it was like to live in the 15th Century, as well as visit the camps of soldiers preparing for war by training. There will also be demonstrations on The Medieval Soldier and The Medieval Woman.

Angie Clay, Site Co-ordinator at Lincoln Castle said: “We’re looking forward to Livery and Maintenance returning to Lincoln Castle as they really bring all aspects of the fifteenth century to life.

“Visitors to the castle will be able to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of medieval times, and witness demonstrations of combat training, dancing, crafts, archery and lots more.”

The event will take place between May 22nd and 23rd, from 10am until 6pm. Tickets cost £6 for adults, £4.30 for children, and family passes are also available.
