Events 2019

26/27 May 2019

CADW – Conway Castle

Conwy Castle comes to life this weekend with the medieval servants in presence. Say a prayer in the chapel, try some freshly made butter on some just baked bread or watch the butcher prepare rabbits whilst making stew. Say hello to the prisoner but watch out he is being guarded or maybe you have an ailment the herbalist will be able to cure?? It’s all held together by the seamstress doing her spinning and weaving. Entry to the castle applies
