Bunbury Village Day goes medieval!



The highlight of Bunbury’s social calendar is to take on a medieval theme this year.

Bunbury Village Day takes place this Saturday (25th June) and organisers say they are delighted that High Sheriff of Cheshire, Jeannie France-Hayhurst will be guest of honour at this year’s event.

Jeannie is one of 55 High Sheriffs across the UK – all of whom were appointed by the Queen to promote the wellbeing and prosperity of their region, to keep the peace, uphold the law and support the judiciary.



But Jeannie won’t be the only esteemed guest.

Bunbury Village Day spokesperson Deborah Pulford said: “We are excited to share the news that we will be joined by a large group from Historia Normannis who will be bringing the late 12th century to life, with a mix of craft displays, combat demonstrations and living history.

“The group love to share their passion for history and look forward to giving us all the chance to handle weapons, armour, and get a sense of what the world was like 800 years ago.



Deborah added: “We are also thrilled that we will be joined by our friends from English Heritage’s Beeston Castle who will be setting up a Medieval HQ selling dress up weaponry, providing an opportunity to find out more about their work, as well as a chance to try your hand at junior jousting.”

The evening entertainment comes courtesy two bands.

First up, Bunbury-based covers band The Lost Boys will be playing R&B with a sprinkling of Rock/Britpop.

They’ll be followed by Green Bullet, a band with a great reputation for delivering a high energy mix of rock, punk and indie covers. 



Deborah commented: “Of course, no Bunbury Village Day would be complete without a well-stocked bar, a mouth-watering BBQ, a splendid parade led by Chester Brass Band, Bunbury Royalty – the Rose Queen and King, a myriad of stalls, the traditional WI cafe, a host of thrilling fairground rides and a classic vehicle display.

“And don’t forget, we are keen to encourage everyone attending – of whatever age    to get on board with the medieval theme and we are looking forward to seeing an array of knights, princesses, jesters and villagers.

“Medieval characters are most welcome to join the parade… and don’t forget there will be prizes for the best dressed!”
