In days of old when knights were bold . . .they would have probably enjoyed joining the fun of a festival or two. So this year we’ve invited the Norfolk and Norwich Medieval Association along to join the weekend of fun. There will be the chance to see knights in fighting form, for youngsters to see what wearing the traditional armour was like and have a go at age-old crafts and see a medieval encampment as it would have been all those years ago. They’re an enthusiastic bunch and will be happy to chat about their hobby, encourage you to join in and give you a few tips on archery.
We've got some particularly talented folk around Worstead and we're aiming to showcase some of the best crafts from the area and nearby. From children's wooden toys to handmade jewellery and stalls selling unusual or funky gifts, the aim is to bring a real cross section of crafters and suppliers to the 2015 festival. Have a browse round and see what you think. Bet you find something you like.
Including a Coconut Shy, the "Mousetrap" game, Splat the Rat, Bowling for a pig and many more.
Egg Throwing and Rockets in a new bigger area
The Village Hall came to life as a benefactor of the festival’s earlier fundraising and in now fundamental part of village life. During the festival it will be serving up traditional teas and visitors can browse indoor stalls. Go on, treat yourself!
The Art Show will feature work for sale primarily by Artists from NOVA (North Norfolk Organization for Visual Artists) and North Walsham Artists. The work will be an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary painting, sculpture, collage, print making and pottery with several new Nova artists showing at Worstead for the first time.
Any festival in Worstead wouldn’t be the same without the well-loved heavy horses who will be brought along to delight visitors and parade in a ring dedicated to rural history. There’s the chance to find out more about them from their owners who will be happy to chat.
Again, the tractors are a big draw as exhibitors take people back in time to a more steady pace of life. There will be the chance to browse around plenty of old models and see some in action. See www.startinghandleclub.co.uk
With their fantastic display. See them on Facebook
Animals can really make an event magic and we will be giving visitors the chance to get up close to a few species. The Raptor Trust will be there with talks in the Country Ring!
We will be holding a Fun Dog Show for all of you canine lovers, so bring your pet dog along and enter them into the show. The Dog Show is on both the Saturday and Sunday and open to everyone. - Run by Westover Vets.
Worstead’s a weaving village so any celebration of rural life wouldn’t be complete without the Worstead Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers. The group is proud of its heritage and will be demonstrating the art of weaving as well as displaying what the traditional looms can produce.
