The event offers a chance to see and experience all elements of medieval warfare, with skilful displays including hand to hand combat, sword fights, archery demonstrations and weaponry showcases. There were also awe-inspiring artillery displays with ancient weapons such as medieval mortar, multiple barrelled guns and a five barrelled cannon to delight onlookers.
