Camlann Medieval Village Michaelmasse Festival

Calendar/Event Details

The lord of Camlann invites you to attend his Michelmasse Festival, with cider pressing, puppetry, music, crafts, archery, and minstrels. Come to Somersetshire, ancient realm of Arthur the king, as our morning trumpet & charter proclamation open the village gates upon the colorful world of Chaucer's England in 1376. The pace is leisurely: everything does not happen at once. The scale is small, intimate: leave behind the hectic 21st century.

Cider-pressing Demonstrations

Japes & sleight of hand by Paynes Magykes

Puppetry & Music by Jacob Priestley's troop Man in the Moon

Long Bow Archery Demonstrations. Village Freemen

Sheep petting for young & old

Villagers demonstrate wool dyeing, blacksmithing, carpentry, cider pressing, weaving, spinning, pottery making, and cottage life.

Craft presentations at Camlann are chosen to feature the kind of hand-made goods that were produced in the Middle Ages. Preference is given to artisans who can demonstrate the use of medieval tools and techniques.

At the Gift shop you may purchase books, gifts, textiles, and replica pottery incorporating medieval art designs.

Festival Food: You may sit down at The Bors Head and order ale, wine or mead with a hot lunch (NOON - 3:00 pm); Order in advance your tickets for the wondrous Michelmasse Feast (begins at 5:00 pm).
