Hay History Weekend and The Battle of Agincourt

by | Sep 15, 2015 | Equestrian Displays, Knights on Horseback, Medieval Jousting Displays

What an amazing weekend at The Hay History Weekend and The Battle of Agincourt; wonderfully organised and superbly entertaining!  The entire team had so much fun celebrating the 600 year anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and the horses marvelled in all the attention.

There were horse and carriage rides around town in the morning alongside medieval tours by Hay History Group, a fantastic turn out by The Freemen of Gwent, as well as calligraphy and workshops to decorate swords and shields.

In the afternoon our Knights turned up to sword fight in and around the castle, followed by performances from the Morris Dancers and The Village Quire.  Culminating in a superb performance by the Hay Theatre Company of Shakespeare’s Henry V with the audience processing through town as either the English or the French ready to fight their final battle in front of the castle.

We met many a princess and brave knight willing to fight on the day and all of this in the fantastic grounds of Hay Castle.

In the evening Professor Anne Curry gave an illustrated talk on the Battle of Agincourt to an engaged audience.

At the end of it all Guinness, Asgard, Harry and Apollo all took a well-deserved roll in the fields before dinner and a good night’s sleep.  A great weekend at the Hay History Weekend and The Battle of Agincourt.
