Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September, 10am to 4pm

Find out about life in Medieval and Tudor times with the Wythe Retinue. As part of National Heritage week, Wythe Retinue in association with Bewdley Civic Society will be visiting Bewdley Museum.

Try on medieval armour and join soldiers as they prepare for the Battle of Tewkesbury. Meet historical characters of Bewdley and find out what they ate and what happened when they became ill. How did they clean their teeth? There will be entertainment from musicians, story telling and games.

The Wythe Retinue are a 15th century War of the Roses re-enactment group.  The name comes from Sir Thomas Wythe, who was responsible for raising the army for the Battle of Tewkesbury, a decisive battle in the War of the Roses. 

This event is a free family day out for all to enjoy. Come along and get into character for the day!

Refreshments available to purchase from the Garden Kitchen café or bring your own picnic.
