The year 2019 saw the arrival of a brand new event, organised in May: Knights! The perfect opportunity to join in the organisation and the preparation of our knights, to discover their equipmenty and gear for horseback joisting or fighting on foot, and to encourage our champions throughout the tournaments!

By the waterside

In partnership with the Brochet Caennais association, a ‘fishing’ afternoon is organised in June. On the occasion, some 50 kilogrammes of trout are released in the castle moat! Participants aged 12 and under can learn the pleasures of fishing, with a few tips to become truly talented fishermen.


The Middle Ages Festival

Every year, the second fortnight of July brings the ‘La Muse’ company, to offer you a programme of performances, demonstrations and medieval workshops.
