Join us to celebrate the beginning of summer at our traditional May Day Fair.

Hedingham Castle will be bursting with life at this fantastic family day out, with engaging arena displays including Maypole dancing, Birds of Prey, and an hilarious performance by The Pantaloons of ‘The Earls of Oxford’ – an exclusive comedy theatre show all about the history of Hedingham Castle’s ancestors, the de Veres.

Explore the medieval village, try your hand at archery and axe throwing, enjoy music and storytelling, and there will be face painting for the little ones. All included in your ticket price.

Wander round a variety of authentic craft stalls, meet the blacksmith and feast on some delicious local food.

Gates open at 10am with the first display starting at 11am. Picnics welcome. Dogs are not permitted at this event due to the presence of livestock and birds of prey.
