Magna Carta Medieval Weekend

Meet the Medieval townsfolk and craftspeople as they take up residence within the Durham Cathedral grounds – encounter a delightful array of sounds, smells and sights from a bygone era. See demonstrations of pastimes and skills that filled their daily life, and be entertained with music, dancing and mumming plays.

Join in with games and soldiers’ drill, or try your hand at skills such as rope making, candle dipping, butter churning and striking your own coin. An exciting and educational experience for all the family!
Visitors can also enjoy traditional story-telling in the Cathedral, at the Font.
