Call to arms for Castle's re-enactment weekend

Ancient and modern armed forces will be out in force at a weekend of activities at Lancaster Castle.

This weekend - 29th - 30th June - sees Lancaster-based Saxon and Norman re-enactment group Croix du Nord occupying the castle courtyard for a Medieval village recreation with displays of weapons, cookery, medicines and even a mock slave auction!

And, on Armed Forces Day, this Saturday 29th June, modern day army cadets will be raising money for the Help for Heroes and Combat Stress charities at the castle and in the city centre.

Lancaster Military Heritage Group is also holding a raffle to raise finds and there will be a Ferret scout car and an armoured fighting vehicle outside the castle gates.
