ALL aboard! The guys from Frome Men’s shed made an appearance at the Cheese Show earlier this month – showcasing their handmade, oar powered floatation device – the almighty coracle. It was made for a race which took place in July – after the Welsh Men’s Sheds Association threw down the gauntlet late last year.
New event for 2017: England's Medieval Festival
10 May 2017
Celebrate the magic of the past at England’s Medieval Festival & participate in 'Boats on the Moat'
Set at the stunning historical setting of Herstmonceux Castle in Sussex, England’s Medieval Festival is a three day immersive experience held over the August bank holiday. This hugely popular annual event is the largest and most authentic of its kind in the UK. It’s a chance to step back in time and discover the wonder of the past.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017, this unique weekend festival offers a very special blend of history and fun for young and old and a chance for thousands of re-enactors and enthusiast to come together and salute the past.
We invite the members of the Coracle Society to attend England’s Medieval Festival, and participate in 'Boats on the Moat'. We would like members to bring a coracle, paddle and buoyancy jacket, so that during the day you can offer festival visitors tuition about coracles and let them have-a-go in your boat on the castle moat.
