Viking-Themed Event

This Easter Viking-themed family-friendly entertainment abounds at Tutbury Castle, with a Viking camp featuring demonstrations of traditional crafts, skills and pastimes. Viking combat displays are expected alongside majestic birds of prey, and a tea room and barbecue stalls will be selling hot and cold refreshments. Little ones can enjoy an egg hunt, or let off steam at a fairground.

Pirate-Themed Event

On 5 May, the castle will be overrun by pirates in swashbuckling costumes. Greeting visitors and staging pirate battles throughout the day, the freebooters will invite families to a living history camp and bring children on a pirate treasure hunt. Birds of prey are also expected, and the Great Hall will be open for guided tours. While a tea room and barbecue stalls will be selling hot and cold refreshments, a fairground will keep kids busy. Fancy dress is encouraged.

1940s-Themed Event

On 27 May, history fans can enjoy a day filled with nostalgia as they join hundreds of re-enactors dressed in 1940s uniforms and civilian dress. British, American, German and Russian soldiers will create displays, show armaments and stage battle re-enactments, and military vehicles will add to the atmosphere. 1940s music, Great Hall tours and stallholders selling civilian and military memorabilia are also expected. While a tea room and barbecue stalls will be selling hot and cold refreshments, a kids treasure hunt will keep little ones busy.

Fairytale-Themed Event

The fairytale-themed event will see Tutbury Castle filled with a range of fairytale characters. Various activities and stalls will keep adults and kids busy. While little ones explore the worlds of their imagination, grownups can enjoy a range of refreshments. Fancy dress is encouraged.
