Party like it’s 1575! It is 444 years since Elizabeth 1’s visit to Kenilworth Castle, join us as she returns to the castle once owned by her court favourite Robert Dudley and be transported back to Kenilworth’s Elizabethan heyday as we showcase the ultimate party palace, with a feast of entertainments fit for the Virgin Queen’s visit.
Join the throngs to welcome the grand arrival of Queen Elizabeth I as we mark her royal visit, lookout for her as the Queen tours the site and join her adoring subjects in welcoming her. Watch as Elizabeth I’s host, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (and Master of the Horse to the Elizabethan Court), puts on expert horse displays for her Majesty’s approval.
Cast your eyes to the heavens as a dashing display of hawks and falcons are demonstrated in flight by the courtly falconers of Raphael Historic Falconry. Elizabethan musician, Wyndebagge, is here to provide the entertainment and see our troublesome fool, Peterkin, in action as he provides the laughter. Dont forget to visit the bustling medieval camp and meet Tudor tradespeople whilst younger ones can join in plenty of hands-on activities
