EVENT POSTPONED AS A NEW DATE LATER IN THE YEAR IS SOUGHT
Leominster Medieval Pageant is based around Owain Glyndwr and the Welsh War of Independence. Leominster was seized in 1402 by Glyndwr following his success at the nearby battle of Pilleth. In 1405 his combined Welsh and French army marched across Herefordshire intending to do battle with Henry IV at Great Witley in Worcestershire.The armies took up battle positions daily and viewed each other from a mile without any major action for eight days. Glyndwr withdrew at nightfall passing through Leominster back into Wales.
The event is free .
Inside the Priory there will be reenactors and craft stalls. There will also be a skirmish in the Priory grounds.
The re-enactors will put on displays and demonstrations. There will be an opportunity to have a go at longbow archery and see replica medieval ‘hand-gonnes’ in use, weather permitting. There will be medieval dance and music. Last year the craft fair featured 35 stalls offering a wide range of hand-made merchandise, attractive displays and friendly banter. Throughout the day hot food and refreshments will be available.
