Canterbury's Medieval Pageant and Trail 2018

The third annual Canterbury Medieval Pageant on Saturday 7th July is going to be a highlight of this Summer in Canterbury!

Commemorating Henry ll’s pilgrimage to Canterbury and astonishing public apology in 1174 this colourful parade features historical characters, mounted warriors, local schools, community and re-enactment groups, giants, music and medieval mayhem.
From near the Westgate Towers at 11am to the Marlowe Theatre at around 12:30, this is a must see event.

Come in costume and join the Parade yourself!

But that’s not all: between 11.30am and 5pm, numerous locations across the city will offer a host of activities and insight into medieval Canterbury. Follow the trail and discover your talent for medieval archery, jewellery making, sword fighting, arts and crafts and much more. There is a whole medieval world waiting to be explored. Visit five or more and receive a FREE chocolate medallion from Canterbury Cathedral Shop.
