Visitors to The Commandery can step back 800 years for medieval celebrations and encounter life during the Middle Ages in one of Worcester’s oldest buildings.

On Sunday and Monday August 26 and 27, the medieval celebrations will bring together two days of activities where visitors can join in with tournament games, explore a living history camp with Amicorum re-enactors, try traditional crafts, and enjoy music and dancing in the Grade I listed building.

 There will also be opportunities to meet medieval characters including archers, knights and traders as well as trying out some archery, completing the ‘squire’s quest’ trail and watching black powder displays.

David Nash, Commandery manager, said: “We have nearly a thousand years of stories to tell at The Commandery, and our bank holiday weekend will be an exciting step back in time to the earliest period of this building’s amazing history."
