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.
Tomorrow there will be a walking parade which will pass through the streets just before lunch. The rest of the day promises plenty of events at Furrowfields, from battles to belly dancing.
The Kids Are Alright exhibition will be available for everyone to visit, along with stalls, a beer tent and fairground ride.
Medieval activities will continue through to Sunday with joint open air services organised by Chatteris Churches Together, story telling, stalls and much more.
Other events around the town include an art exhibition at the King Edward Centre and a Community Fayre outside the Parish Church.
