St Kenelms Day again !

The year seems to be flying, not helped tonight by it starting to go dark before 9 o'clock ! It's just a minor blip there 's lots more sun to come. This weekend is The Medieval Battle at Tewkesbury. The site opens at eleven . There is a charge for car parking but the event is free but they do ask for donations. Have a look at their website http://www.tewkesburymedievalfestival.org/ Years ago I was asked by a friend who played fiddle Pat Heslop if I fancied playing some music at a do in Tewkesbury and if I did I should be in fancy dress. Well we turned up to find the field full of people in Medieval costume...well I wore a flapper dress and Pat wore top hat and tails ! I don't think we could have looked dafter !
It is on all weekend but the St. Kenelm play will be performed near the beer tent at around eleven.
Sunday 17th is St Kenelms Day and the play will start at St Kenelms Well , up Sudeley Hill and to the left. At 3.30pm there will be a well blessing then the play should start approximately at 3.45pm.There isn't any car parking I'm afraid but cars can be left in the car park by the Visitor Centre at Sudeley Castle. The play is in three acts and is performed by Winchcombe people. After St Kenelms well there is a walk down to Sudeley for the second act then another walk to St Peters Church for the final act. Refreshments are available at The visitor centre and at the end at St Peters Church, Winchcombe. For more details please call Winchcombe tourist Information Centre 01242 602925. See you there !
