Event Description

Join us for the incredible ‘Carnival of History’ in partnership with Arts Council funding, to celebrate our 900th anniversary!

Using large-scale costumes re-enactors will travel through nine centuries of the Castle’s history across two days. Local communities will come together to bring this spectacular event to life.

Witness extraordinary shows which will reimagine medieval battles, Henry VIII on his way to the Field of Cloth of Gold in 1520, the Battle of Maidstone in 1648 and many other historic events of the Castle's fascinating history.

The Carnival will be brought to life by collaborations with Shademakers UK and leading professional street arts performers, alongside acclaimed national professional arts companies, community participants, dancers, band, volunteers and re-enactors, to create a vibrant and exciting procession through the grounds.
