Arundel a success!
The Arundel Siege, held over the second May bank holiday weekend of each year was a resounding success. The castle staff and re-enactors all rally closely together to put on a show that brings a real taste of history as a simulated siege of the castle is undertaken.
Under heavy cannon fire the English defenders valiantly saw off the French invasion and the castle is safe for another year.
We next return to Arundel over the August bank holiday for History in Action, a multi-period that has evolved to showcase history from the Roman era through to the 18th century.
