STEP back in time and experience the Chatteris Medieval Festival this weekend.

A medieval meal, dog show and exhibition by the Kids Are Alright Campaign, are just some of the events planned as part of the festival.

Kicking off the festival on Friday evening is a Living History Encampment for schools. Cromwell Community College, Kingsfield, Thomas Eaton and Manea School have already signed up.

Also today will be a Medieval Meal and Merriment which will take place in a marquee on Furrowfields. Those attending are encouraged to get a real taste of what life was like, not only by eating the food, but by dressing up in period costumes. Tickets are �22.50 for a four course meal.
