This event has two elements in which you can discover some of Berwick's past which made it so important.
 

  1. A medieval living history staged at locations close to the town’s unique fortifications with a medieval encampment with demonstrations of archery and hand-to-hand combat skills (including some public participation), and displays of cooking, medical practice and other aspects of medieval life.​​
     

  2. An exhibition, Defending Berwick and the Border, staged in the Town Hall illustrating aspects of the turbulent history of Berwick and the Eastern Borders.

The story of Berwick Castle and its defences.

The development of Berwick’s fortifications from the 12th to the 20th centuries, the several sieges and captures of the town and castle of Berwick-upon-Tweed between 1296 and 1482.
