Tatton Park has a great weekend of entertainment planned at the atmospheric Old Hall on June 15 and 16.

Sunday, June 16 is also Father’s Day, and though that hadn’t been ‘invented’ in medieval times, nowadays it is an excellent reason for a special day out.

All the traditional elements of a Fayre of this kind will be arrayed in the grounds of Tatton Park’s Old Hall.

There’ll be demonstrations of firepower, from the flash of cannon and musket, to the satisfying thwack of a longbow arrow finding its target.

Archery competitions will be available for those who’d like to test their skills.

The Medieval Fayre will be held on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16, between 11am and 5pm, with last admission at 4pm.
