Join Heritage Lincolnshire and the Friends of Bolingbroke Castle as they team up with the Plantagenet Society to bring you a weekend to remember from August 20-21, 2022 at Bolingbroke Castle in Spilsby.

Charlotte Davey, Sites Manager at Heritage Lincolnshire says: “It’s so exciting to be hosting Bolingbroke Back in Time again this year. We’re proud that we’ve managed to build on the success of 2021 and expand the event to include new things to see and plenty of chances for visitors to get involved in the action. We’ve added a falconer, hands on activities and a horsemanship show this year. I just can’t believe how big the war horses are. Just wait until the public sees them! It’s going to be fantastic.”

The castle is also known for its historic roots: Bolingbroke was the birthplace of King Henry IV, and is free to visit for most of the year when there isn’t an event on. Hannah Thompson, Business Manager at Heritage Lincolnshire, says: “After a smaller successful event last year, we’re returning to a more flexible day out, where you can move around the site, interacting with lots of displays set around the wider shows on offer. There will be knights showing off their skills in the full-contact combat tournament, as well as demonstrations and opportunities for visitors to have a go and make some amazing memories.”

Tickets are on sale now at or via the event's Facebook page.
