Traquair House (MAP LINK)
The Traquair Medieval Fayre is Scotland’s only authentic Medieval Fayre and is an unbeatable mix of medieval entertainment from jousting to jesters in the grounds of Scotland’s Oldest Inhabited House.
This is truly a family event with Jousting down the great grassed avenue of Traquair as well as a cannon firing display to start the event, archery, military drills and the occasional skirmish throughout the weekend.
Walk into the old walled garden and be transported back 500 years with medieval traders, wandering minstrels, jester shows, a gruesome exhibit of an executioners’ instruments of torture and even a chance to put yourself in the stocks if you dare!
You can learn some green working skills, try your hand at willow weaving or have-a-go at Longbow archery. There are many other demonstrations of ancient crafts such as a medieval forge, wool carding and dyeing, chain mail making and tapestry. For children, there is a wonderful sword and shield making workshop.
Delicious food will be on offer with a hog roast, wood-fired pizza from our own oven, buffalo burgers and a scrumptious Fayre Ale brewed on the premises in our 300-year-old brewhouse.
Online ticket sales will be available in April 2020.
