The Murder of King Edward II at Berkeley Castle

Visit Berkeley Castle during the October half-term (Tuesday 25th – Thursday 27th October 2011) and meet John Maltravers, one of the men in charge of King Edwards’s imprisonment at Berkeley Castle in 1327. Visitors will also be able to meet King Edward II himself.

Maltravers and the King will explain their reasons for and the nature of Edward’s imprisonment at Berkeley Castle. Both men will try and get visitors on their side – but will they help Edward escape?

With the help of re-enactors from Past Pleasures Limited, Berkeley Castle’s own ‘Horrible History’ will be re-told for children and adults alike to enjoy and participate. There will be three 30 minute performances throughout the day (12.30pm, 2.00pm and 3.30pm) and the characters will be available at other times to meet and greet. Visitors may even catch a glimpse of the King incarcerated in his cell.

Unbelievably there is no additional charge for this fantastic event – it is all included within the Castle admission price.

In addition to the re-enactments, visitors can also enjoy a choice of two quizzes as well as a Halloween Garden Trail – all of which win a prize and are also included within the admission price! A great day-out and excellent value for money for the whole family!
