Medieval Falconry at The Bishop’s Palace
On Saturday 17th September from 10am-4pm, the gardens of The Bishop’s Palace in Wells in Somerset will be hosting a spectacular day of medieval falconry. The Raptor Foundation will be bringing their stunning array of birds of prey to entertain and delight visitors to the Palace Gardens.
There will be a range of owls, hawks and falcons to meet and flying displays of medieval living history with a difference. Marvel as these magnificent birds show off their talents and learn from the experts about how they would have been used, and by whom, in days gone by. Peasant, pauper or King – find out which bird would have suited you the best.
Between the displays, the birds will be available to view and even to hold if you dare!
