Templecombe Medieval Pageant

We had a fantastic time at this event yesterday and wanted to share some of the photographs with you. If you have never visited you must put it in your diary for next year.  Templecombe is situated on the A357 in Somerset and the pageant is always well signposted.

This is me getting to know one of the owl's

and this is the owl getting to know me - helppppp!!!

Best hairstyle of the day!

    Looks like a good time was had by all. Love the pictures. Wish we lived in England so we could attend these events. My next book takes place in England. Glad I found your blog.

    Hello Darlene,
    Glad you like the pictures. England does have a lot going for it especially now the sun is shining! I’m looking forward to discovering your blog.

  5. Oh to be in England...
    This looks like so much fun, I love the medieval period. These pictures are great.

    Thanks so much, glad you enjoyed the pictures.
    Your comment made me think of -
    Oh, to be in England now that April ’s there,
    And whoever wakes in England sees, some morning, unaware,
    That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
    Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
    While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
    In England—now!
    Just need to replace April with June!
    Thanks again, Barbara

  7. I love that picture of the owl! I thought at first you'd dressed up, but you hadn't... Maybe next year?

    Hi Jane
    Not only should we have dressed up we should have signed up! Everyone went out of their way to give all the visitors a really good day. The ‘Battle of Templecombe’ at the end was amazing – battering rams, bows and arrows, cannons that made the crowd jump every time they were fired, and every possible other weapon you can think of. The commentator was really funny – especially as half the combatants couldn’t hear what he was saying so that when they were supposed to retreat they actually went on fighting. Fantastic day!


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
Barbara xx
