Apr 30 2016

It is 1475 and Edward IV is King of England. Once again tensions have arisen between England and France, and seeing an opportunity a French force has crossed the channel, seized the Kings Ordinance (artillery) and surrounded the Castle at Arundel. The French intend to hold the Earl of Arundel’s fortress, allowing a stronger invasion force to cross from France, sail up the River Arun and into the heart of Sussex. Although there was no historical siege of Arundel Castle in the 15th century, the three-day event will show the importance of artillery in taking a castle and as a battle field weapon as well as skirmishes between the two sides and crafts, costumes and armour of the period. A large tented encampment will be positioned throughout the upper grounds of the Castle.
