The dates for the award-winning Glastonbury Abbey Medieval Fayre next year have been announced.
Glastonbury Abbey Medieval Fayre will be held across the weekend of April 18 and 19 2020.
Winner of the silver award in the Tourism Event of the Year category at the recent Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards for 2019, the Glastonbury Abbey Medieval Fayre promises to be bigger and better in 2020.
The fayre opens from 10am to 5pm each day and your ticket includes access to the abbey ruins as well as the medieval fayre.
There are loads of activities for children, re-enactments throughout the day, living history camps, medieval jousts and battles, and food and drink to suit all tastes.
