A Merrie Noyse!

At Tewkesbury Medieval Festival, we were lucky enough to have been in the market next to A Merrie Noyse, a fabulous minstral group who play a very wide range of instruments and  music from different times.

During their set on Sunday, we danced several Tudor Playford dances to their music. Hopefully we will be able to reherse together soon and bring the music and dancing to other events in the future.

Tewkesbury Medieval Festival

Some of the hottest days of the year! We were impressed by the festival management providing cooling and entertaining fixed water sprays and their concern for everyone.

We were in the market next to a Merrie Noyse, a minstrel group who we accompanied in the main tent with some Tudor playford dances. This was enjoyable for all of us, its not often we get to dance for a full band!


Tewkesbury Medieval Festival


Our first festival! This was terrifying and exciting in equal measure.

The scale of Tewkesbury is very exciting, a very large number of stalls, two living history camps and a big battle.

Everyone we spoke to was very kind and encouraging, and we are so glad it went well. We will certainly be back for more in the future!
