Volunteer thank-you event: Arms and Armour

Elsdon Village Green, Elsdon, NE19 1AB

As a special thank-you to our volunteers, we are offering an introduction to warfare in the late fourteenth century— there’ll be swords, armour, polearms and bows – all available for handling plus a chance for basic spear drill! John Sadler and Beverley Palin will be providing an interactive introduction to the subject with lively discourse, storytelling and even period music, much clashing of swords and a chance (for those who wish to) to join in.

The event is free of charge and will be followed by an afternoon tea at Elsdon Village Hall, which will also be open to the wider community to come along and find out more about Revitalising Redesdale projects and have an informal chat.
