Residents and visitors to Chesterfield can take part in a series of themed activities at Chesterfield Borough Council’s annual medieval fun day event.

The event, which takes place on Tuesday 26 July from 10am to 4pm, will see a host of fun activities taking place in and around the town centre including:

  • Market stalls from charity stands to street food as well as a whole host of traders from Chesterfield’s general and flea markets
  • Medieval themed entertainment in the market place and Market Hall including a court jester, medieval beggars, goblin, big bad wolf and dragon
  • Medieval encampment in the grounds of the Crooked Spire with troop marches at 11am and 1.30pm and skirmishes 12.30pm and 2.30pm
  • Find out more about the crusades and hear tales of battles and Richard the Lionheart at Chesterfield Museum
  • Take a trip up Chesterfield’s world-famous Crooked Spire – tickets are £5 for adults and £3 for children.

There will also be a fun fair in New Square on Tuesday 26 July and Wednesday 27 July.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centre and visitor economy said: “The medieval fun day is always a great day out and a way for families to learn together about the past.

“With events taking place in the town centre and at Chesterfield Museum, there really is something for everyone.”
