PREPARE to be cast back to medieval times and see knights mounted upon horses ready for a bloody battle just a stone’s throw from the centre of town.

This weekend, the Knights of Skirbeck will once again descend on Church Farm Village, based in Church Road South, Skegness, and turn the quiet, rural, idyll into chaos and combat.

On Saturday, April 7 through to Monday, April 9 come and see the mischievous knights commence a battle during a Medieval Tournament and enjoy not-so-traditional Easter weekend fun.

Also meet the jesters, squires, men at arms, a surgeon, cooks and more who will be camping on site to give demonstrations of their prowess at arms and other forms of slaughter every hour, on the hour, from 11am to 4pm.

Visitors will also get the chance to explore the camp, try out their weaponry and experience a taste of real medieval life for themselves.

There will also be the chance to explore Church Farm Village, sample the goods in its gift shop, see the farmhouse and more.

The farmhouse at Church Farm Village was built in 1760 - making it the second oldest building in Skegness.

Art-lovers will also be able to view the stunning gallery and architecture of the surrounding buildings.

Finding the site isn’t hard by foot. It is only five minutes from the railway station.

By car, guests can park in the private car park. Enter the postcode into any Sat Nav - PE25 2HF.

Admission for the Knights of Skirbeck event costs £3 all day (children and concessions are £2; a family ticket for two adults and two children is £8). Visit www.churchfarmvillage.org.uk for more details.
