FAMILY activities will take place at Knaresborough Castle as part of the Yorkshire Medieval Festival.
On Saturday, Swords & Sieges is a family day with medieval sword fighting workshops, castle tours, crafts and activities.
The following Saturday, 16 August, Tales and Troubadours features medieval music, stories and tours of the castle and sallyport, a secret underground tunnel that would have been used as an escape route during deadly sieges or to ambush invading troops.
The events are from 11am to 4pm daily. Entrance to the castle is free but there is a small charge for some of the activities.
