Wymondham Abbey Norfolk Medieval Evening

Wymondham Abbey
Head to Wymondham’s historic Abbey on Wednesday, June 15, 2016, from 5pm to 8pm, for an evening of 1107-style merriment. The Medieval Evening takes place in the church and churchyard off Church Street. It will be an evening of fun for all family, costing £5 for adults, for which you receive medieval money to spend at the event. Children get in free.

Falconry at Wymondham Abbey 
Explore medieval life and meet jesters, medieval villagers and more. There’ll be a falconer demonstrating one of the oldest hunting skills and a herbalist giving advice in the use of plants found in the Abbey’s herb garden. Try your hand at archery, partake of a hearty hog roast and sup an ale, while listening to merry medieval music.

Wymondham Abbey was founded in 1107, and dissolved as an Abbey on the orders of Henry VIII in 1538. The church was spared, and continues as the town’s Parish Church. The recently completed development project has given the church new modern facilities and allowed many ancient artefacts to be displayed.
