Year 1 Castle Day
The Year is 1341 and Norwich is in uproar! A great tournament has been announced to be held on the meadow in front of Norwich Castle.

After the work was complete and the scene set, they feasted on their own homemade pottage and thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon of medieval dancing and entertainment. It was a Castle Day to remember!
