Bosworth 2019

As ever, an unforgettable weekend at Bosworth medieval festival – albeit the weather wasn’t kind on the day before, with the heavens opening and the result being a quagmire on the battlefield arena.

But the organizers and all their volunteers did a fantastic job preparing the site as best they could despite the horrendous conditions on Friday and adapting the programme of events as required.
Sadly the mud meant no horses as they wouldn’t have been safe, so there was no jousting – and His Grace King Richard had to lead his fateful charge on foot!

It was lovely to meet up with so many old friends and (hopefully) some new ones through the weekend. Thank you to Wayne Spence, Susan Lamb and Joanne Larner for the photo ops to show off my new costume…quickly accessorized from some of the stalls on the day  🐗🎩💼
