Leominster Medieval Pageant

What a lovely weekend in the Welsh Marches!
Saturday was spent at the fabulous Leominster Medieval Pageant, having lots of Richard-related chats (some very intense – hopefully a few converts to his cause!) and meeting some lovely people. I was lucky enough to be positioned next to the Mortimer Society stall, meeting Fran and Phil among others, and right in front of the space for the musicians. (Sometimes I felt a little like Scarlett O’Hara at the ball – when she’s still in mourning and not allowed to dance, but tapping her feet behind her fundraising stall!)

It was also lovely to meet Natara Perry at last (who very kindly shared her photos).

As always at these events, there were some beautiful hounds in attendance – some of them very much fit for a king or queen. 

As ever I was so busy at the stall I didn’t have the chance to go and see the activities outside, or even see much of the dancing – but everyone I spoke to appeared to be enjoying a very pleasant and busy day. 

Many thanks to Dave for alerting me to the event and Tracey and all her team for organization. I hope to come back another time – and enjoy a little more of this lovely area.
