Evesham was such a lovely event. I have not been before, although the others had in 2019. It is a slightly earlier period than we normally do being a battle that took place in the town in 1265. Luckily my nun’s outfit covers a multitude of centuries. I was there this time with my new medieval group, Team Falchion. I am still with the other group, but always intended to join this group, who have been friends of ours for a very long time, so that I could attend even more events.
All of these photos were taken by our wonderful event photographer, Pat Patrick, who spends so much time at every event taking hundreds of pictures. We also had a photo shoot with our group photographer Silke in the abbey church. The costumes were wonderful, very much inspired by Byzantine fashions with lots of flowing tunics and embroidery.
On Saturday we had a parade through the town, which was brilliant fun, I would love to go back and spend more time there, it looks like a really lovely place with lots to see and a lovely river bank walk. I think I visited when I was younger as I grew up near there and have vague memories of it.
There was one battle on Saturday and two battles on Sunday and as well as the foot combat there were horses which was very exciting to watch.
It was just so lovely to catch up with friends again, sit in a beer tent and round a campfire and just have such a great time, it thankfully seemed as if the last year has been a bad dream. That is the last medieval event for this year though we have just got back from a WW2 one so will post about that later this week.
I hope that you have had a good weekend, have fun, take care, stay safe and thanks for visiting.
