This was my third year in a row of visiting the Abbey Medieval Festival and it was just as amazing as the other times, this is probably my favourite event of the year. Its nice to get out of the city and step into another time.
I know the word reenactors is used to describe many of the people in the events but when they are jousting and battling it doesn’t seem fitting to me, its not like they are choreographed and are reenacting a fight, they are really going at it, it can be brutal at times.
I’ve also heard in terms of authenticity that the medieval professions, costumes, crafts etc are highly regarded.
Anyway lets look at a few photos and I’ll provide links at the end to check out more if you like them. You can click on them to see them bigger.
If your interested make sure you follow AbbeyTournament on twitter and become a fan on facebook. Visit the Abbey Tournament website and make sure you pre-order your tickets for next year so that you can avoid standing in line.
