Corwen to host Middle Ages festival

Corwen is hosting a celebration of the Welsh Middle Ages – with particular reference to Owain Glyndwr and the Age of Welsh Princes – over the weekend of September 14 and 15.

The aim is to take people back in time to another era and show what daily life was like in those days.

The event, organised by a team of volunteers, will celebrate Corwen’s connections with Owain Glynd┼Ár, who was proclaimed Prince of Wales on September 16, 1400 by his supporters, from his nearby manor of Glyndyfrdwy, which began his 14-year rebellion against English rule.

The festival Gwyl Y Fflam will see medieval reenactors from near and far descending on Edeyrnion to create living history camps. 

A spokesperson said: “This lively, historical recreation offers a glimpse into Welsh heritage. It’s also a fantastic gastronomical feast with medieval hog roast and drinks.” 

The market stalls will be selling food and crafts of our local artisans.

There will be a medieval jester, sword fighting, battle re-enactments, jugglers, fire-eaters, have-a-go archery, medieval theatre with puppets, historical exhibitions, live medieval music and dances, story tellers and a lot of children's activities. 
Medieval Fighters from all over the UK will challenge each other in the two-day British Medieval Combat Championship Heritage Cup VI at the festival.
