A packed programme of events and activities has been put together to showcase the town’s Hanseatic links past and present.
Finale festival fun begins from 10am on Saturday May 17 with children’s activities in the Town Hall.
Through the day there will be guided walks, minstrels, fire breathers, a mediaeval market, archery, and a series of craft demonstrations including calligraphy, blacksmithing, tile-making, pottery and wool/textile processes.
Children’s activities, including making herring kites and making signal flags, take place all day in the Stone Hall at the Town Hall and Medieval dancing in the Assembly Rooms at the Town Hall throughout the day.
