medieval weekend

Saturday 8 August, 10.00am–4.30pm
Sunday 9 August, 12.30pm–4.30pm

Durham Cathedral.

Meet the Medieval townsfolk and craftspeople as they take up residence within the Cathedral grounds – encounter a delightful array of sounds, smells and sights from a bygone era. See demonstrations of pastimes and skills that filled their daily life, and be entertained with music, dancing and mumming plays. Join in with games and soldiers’ drill, or try your hand at skills such as rope making, candle dipping, butter churning and striking your own coin. An exciting and educational experience for all the family!

A free event, open to all. No need to book!
