ANYONE who has ever wondered what life was like for a medieval knight will have the chance to find out when the 'Knights of Honour' arrive at Cosmeston Medieval Village.
Battle will commence at the historical hotspot for a swash-buckling weekend of entertainment later this month.
The Vale council will host the free event at the medieval village on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September.
Visitors will have the chance to see how a company of William De Caversham’s medieval knights prepared for war, with training displays taking place on both days.
At 12pm and 3pm on Saturday and Sunday, the knights will don full armour and wow the crowds with a range of combat shows.
On the Sunday, the sounds of medieval music will ring through the village as musical quartet, Contraband, perform in the Tithe Bar, also between 12pm and 3pm.
The medieval village tours will also be running throughout the weekend.
Starting times will be 12pm, 1.30pm and 3pm, at a cost of £2.50 per person.
The costumed guides include Walter the Reeve and his wife Charlotte, Henry Hogg, mother Mary Monica, Angharad the ale-wife, Father Edwin, Joan the dairy maid, and Catherine the baker.
Steve Latham, country parks and commons manager at the Vale of Glamorgan Council, said: “The last weekend of September will see a real celebration of medieval life at our village in Cosmeston.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing our staff and volunteers come together with the knights and the musicians to provide our visitors with a taste of medieval life.”
