The bow and arrow tournaments and the 14th Century Foot Battles are also an amazing display of talent; and, if you stick around after the shows you’ll be able to chat with the actors and experience the different types of weapons they use.
Make sure you stop for lunch around the Queens Court. The Queen, is the one responsible for settling all the disputes, and she may call on you to help resolving the disputes.
