Norman Re-enactment Weekend at Appleby Castle

This April, step back in time to the early 1100s as the living history group Vestmyr Ulfar descends on Appleby Castle.

Come and discover how Ranulf ‘le Meschin’ asserted Norman dominance over the lands of Westmorland in the years following the conquest and how he set about creating Appleby as we know it today.

See how Norman knights were armed and learn more about the weapons that gave them the tactical edge.

Witness brutal combat and harsh Norman justice and experience music, crafts and cookery in our Norman encampment.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to witness history first hand in the stunning setting of an intact Norman keep!
Tickets are for The Norman Centre and the grounds include the re-enactment. Adult £10. Senior £8. Child £5 (age 16 and under). Family £25 (2 Adults & up to 3 Children).
