Medieval re-enactment to bring Castle Rushen back to life

ConquestCastle Rushen will be brought to life by the UK’s premier medieval re-enactment society next month.

A troupe from Conquest will invade the ancient grounds on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 and will transport the castle, and its visitors, back to the 1200s.

Conquest will showcase life in a 13th century garrison with opportunities to witness knights engaging in live steel combat and the chance to handle their authentic Medieval arms and armour.

History experts will be on hand to discuss the skills needed to make it as a Medieval knight and the Medieval surgeon will also be on hand for those knights who are injured in battle. Be warned however, he’ll be using authentic surgical tools to patch up those who need attention.
