Family History Weekend at Arundel Castle

15th - 16th August 2020


A family favourite, this weekend of historical hijinks is the ideal living history event for younger visitors.

Historical characters including a Norman knight, a pirate and a person from the Stone Age will bring the past to life. A professional storyteller will tell tales to captivate young minds, and a falconer will amaze.

A variety of crafts and activities will be available, including have-a-go archery, mini catapults and a crafts tent.  A thrilling kids’ battle twice each day will allow little ones to play make-believe and wield soft-play weaponry beneath a real Castle! At 12pm and 3pm, the battles are all about having fun and putting those fantastic imaginations to use!
