Historic Barley Hall becomes the home of majestic winged creatures this weekend as we say goodbye to the summer with a series of activities related to how majestic birds of prey were tamed and utilised throughout the medieval period.

Join our Falconer as he takes you through the variety of uses these majestic birds served during the Middle Ages as well as the chance for a special photo opportunity outside our beautiful medieval townhouse.

Be sure to explore the rest of the hall and get hands-on with history with some fun magic-inspired crafting activities for all the family, including wand-making, telescope construction and an opportunity to make your own charms.
