Saxon King at Bishop Wood

Saxon King is coming to Bishop Wood!

The Saxons are planning to invade Bishop Wood Centre on Sunday 25 March.

The Saxon re-enactment group Wulfheodenas will be taking over Bishop Wood Centre for the whole day, providing a host of activities for all the family.

Wulfheodenas, a warrior band from the time of the Staffordshire Hoard and Sutton Hoo will set up camp in the Saxon Hall and, throughout the day, deliver a series of presentations about Saxon life and notable warriors of the period.

Accompanied by their craftsmen and women, who have made things in metal, bone and cloth. Visitors can talk to them about what life was like in Anglo-Saxon England at the start of the seventh century and listen to their stories and tales, and learn how they lived and what they thought about their lives.

King Raedwald played by Paul Mortimer will be returning with his warriors. Last time he came he performed the official opening of the Saxon Hall at Bishops Wood.

John Rhymer, Head of Centre said: "Having Wulfheodenas at the Centre, will give visitors a taste of Saxon life by exploring costume, food, arms and armour.  Wulfheodenas conduct thorough research into Anglo-Saxon times in Britain. They have a wealth of knowledge about the Anglo-Saxon period and are experts at sharing it in an imaginative way which should guarantee a fun-filled day".

Other attractions include finding out how jewellery was made, watch warriors in combat and how they made fire.

The event takes place at Bishop Wood Centre, Near Stourport on Sunday 25 March from 10am until 3.30pm and is organised by the   Friends of Bishops Wood.
