Lots of fun - medieval style

Thousands of people flocked to Chesterfield on Tuesday 26 July for the annual medieval fun day, organised by the council as part of our commitment to providing community events for all ages.

We had storytelling, wandering beggars, a medieval encampment in Rykneld Square, a dragon, lots of charity and community stalls in the market place and a fun fair in New Square.
