Escafeld Mediaeval Society
March 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Escafeld Mediaeval Society was formed over 40 years ago by a group of Police Officers based in Sheffield. It all started in 1971 as the entertainment for the annual Police Gala where the aforementioned group performed a display on the theme of the Wild West.
This went down very well and the intrepid players were asked to return the following year, this time the theme of mediaeval knights was chosen. This was even more popular than the first show and some suggested that it might make a great hobby in itself. Sure enough, the Escafeld Mediaeval Society was formed in 1973 and so far has enjoyed almost 35 years of displays in Yorkshire and further afield in Wales and Scotland.
Escafeld has performed for many different occasions and has had the pleasure of performing for English Heritage and CADW at such breathtaking sites as Conisborough, Castle Rising and Caernarfon.
