BUDDING knights and princesses will be heading to Bolsover Castle for English Heritage’s ‘Time Travellers Go... Knights and Princesses’ week from 13th to 17th August.

Lucy Hutchings, events manager at English Heritage, said: “We´re inviting all young princesses to put on their prettiest dress, and knights to pick up their trusty toy sword and head down to Bolsover Castle to travel back in time.

“Children can meet a medieval princess and knight, learn about etiquette and try on armour. There will be squire training for aspiring knights and the opportunity to take part in a children’s battle.”

The ‘Time Travellers Go... Knights and Princesses’ event is part of a summer series of hands-on history events taking place at the castle.
