If you've not seen or heard the news on the mid-week and Saturday Show with Karen Woodham and Will Tomlinson-Roberts, then let us tell you about what's happening at Gwrych Castle on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th August, the castle celebrating all things medieval for the weekend.

The amazing Castle in Abergele will be bringing folk tales to life and the medieval world of knights and fair maidens, as noble warriors take to their steeds to fight for glory, there will be mystical wizards casting spells and up to no good, look out for the medieval characters that will be roaming the castle (the perfect opportunity to grab photo of the characters from a time gone by).

Sticking with the medieval theme during the weekend, there will be a hog roast to keep those rumbling tums at bay, as well as a collection of food stalls for a variety of tasty treats to keep you topped up throughout the weekend's festivities.

Don't worry about leaving your four-legged friends out of the fun, they can come along as well (as long as they are kept on their leads), you can give them a chance to taste some dog-friendly ice cream to keep them cool during the warm spell that is expected.

There will be so much to keep you entertained during the Saturday and Sunday, along with the knights and maidens, there will also be dancers, music, birds of prey displays and face painting for you to enjoy during your visit, if you want to remember your visit and the fun you have, then you can visit the crafts stalls that will have an assortment of souvenirs to take home. Charities will also be there to greet you and welcome your support for their amazing causes.
