Norwich’s Chapelfield Gardens to host a medieval market over the Lord Mayor’s weekend

Norwich will be transported back in time as a medieval themed market comes to town.

Jugglers, artisans, merchants and more will be in costume selling foods, crafts, clothing and telling stories.

The market will run over the Lord Mayor's weekend of July 7 and 8 and will be packed with authentic medieval food marvels including venison and wild boar sausages, steaks, pork pies, hearty breads and fruit juices.

As well as the food, entertainment ranges from battle re-enactments, to musicians, to fire juggllers and puppet shows. Chapelfield Gardens in the centre of the city will play host to the medieval mayhem over the weekend.

The Lord Mayor's celebration is a popular celebration for the city each year with a carnival, fireworks, funfair and street entertainers.

Paul Kennedy, from The Market Square Group who are running the market, said: 'The folk of Norwich can expect both highly original retail goods together with a hugely entertaining and educational event.

'And anyone found not joining in the fun may find themselves in the stocks or at the mercy of the Clanwulfar Vikings.'
