HistoryFest takes families back in time

  • Category: Family Fun
  • Dates: Friday, 18 April 2014 to Sunday, 20 April 2014

Families on Guernsey this April will have the chance to travel back in time as part of Castle Cornet's annual HistoryFest celebration, which sees performers take over the historical site for Easter Weekend.

From April 18th until the 20th, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy live music, participate in live action roleplay, hear stories from the people of the Middle Ages and witness theatrical productions in the open air.

Costumed crusaders will take over the castle from 10am until 5pm every day, and those who wish to return several times are advised to purchase the Discovery Pass which is just £15 and offers unlimited entry to the Guernsey Museum at Candie, as well as Cornet and its museum.

Accompanying children go free, so why not take them along to this great family event? Stay at The Duke of Richmond Hotel and get the most out of the island with the Tale of 2 Islands package which offers a comprehensive range of activities as well as luxurious four-star accommodation.
