Multi-Day Shire Day

Can’t make it to Double Wars? Then please join the Shire of Flintheath in our first multi-day Shire Day! On May 25th through the 27th, we will be medievally entertaining ourselves, and hopefully you, at the Bourn Manor Farm. This site is just outside of Cambridge and has overnight camping capacity. In fact, seeing as it’s a long weekend, we think this is the perfect opportunity to break out your period pavilion, enjoy the spring weather, and check the guy ropes are all still working before Raglan.
