From April 20-22 2019, Arundel Castle in West Sussex will see Richard The Lionheart, King of England, prepare to embark on the Third Crusade in 1189…

Visitors will witness breath-taking demonstrations of Norman weaponry, armour, combat, battle tactics, archery and falconry as the King’s Barons and Knights raise men and supplies in the large tented encampment at the base of the fortress. There will also be a craft tent and have-a-go archery for the over 8s to enjoy during the three days of 12th century festivities.
