Win a family ticket to England’s Medieval Festival at Herstmonceux Castle

9th May

We have got together with the organisers of this amazing event to offer the chance for the Heathfield News readers to win a family day ticket for two adults and two children. The Medieval Festival at Herstmonceux Castle, held annually every August Bank Holiday weekend, is expected to draw its biggest-ever attendance this year. Last year over 30,000 visitors flocked through the gates at the three-day Festival, already the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. This year, the Festival is in its 26th year and has been enlarged and expanded and includes more performers, artists and attractions than ever before. The unique mix of entertainment and hospitality is set for a record number of visitors joining in the medieval fun.
