LEOMINSTER MEDIEVAL PAGEANT
EVENT | SATURDAY 6TH APRIL
The good people of Leominster and the Marches of England and Wales are invited to join us and be our guests at the Leominster Medieval Pageant. This year we commemorate 1405, the year of the lions and the lilies, in which during the Welsh War for Independence Owain Glyndwr invaded England with a combined Welsh/French army and retreated through Leominster. This was the last time an invading French army penetrated into England.
As well as living history displays, there will be a foot tournament, a skirmish, medieval music and dance. The large craft and artisan fair will feature a wide range of local designers, makers and producers, all undercover in the Priory Church. There will be food and refreshments.
This is a FREE entry event, for all the family to enjoy, provided by experienced re-enactors and performers who provide their services at no charge for the benefit of the local community. All funds are raised by the organisers, and various local businesses provide help with goods in kind and with their services.
The event is on the historic old Priory site so head for the Priory Church on Saturday 6th April. It opens to the public at 10.00 am and runs until 4.00 pm. Bring along your family and friends and make a day of it. The Pageant is now well established on the calendar and attracts people to the town from as far afield as the South Coast and Hadrian’s Wall.
