See Blacksmithing and Stained Glass demonstrations, talk to the experts and try your hand at a range of heritage building and traditional crafts including weaving, pottery, stone carving and much more . There’s also food and craft stalls and children’s activities all weekend.

Our Behind the Scene’s Tours will be running at 10.30 and 1pm all weekend, giving you the chance to enjoy a peek inside the Castle before it undergoes its spectacular transformation.

While not join in our St Peter’s Chapel Tours from 10am-4pm, where you can explore its history, hear stories of the Prince Bishops and see the magnificent stained glass windows. For this weekend only the Chapel will look even more stunning than usual as it is filled with beautiful floral arrangements to celebrate our Week in Flowers.
