I am emailing to thank your society for the lovely day my family had at Caldicott Castle with your knights and ladies on Sunday. From the moment we arrived my children were completely captivated by the event. The friendliness and attention of the knights, ladies and the little squire my son played with made the day very special for them - they have not stopped talking about it!

We've just returned from a fabulous day out watching your group at Richmond castle. We had the best day out we'd had for a couple of years and I just wanted to say thank you.

Home from a 2nd day with the amazing Plantagenets, hope to see you all again next year, have a safe journey home.

Brilliant time at Richmond Castle, our little boys had a blast! Will definitely come again. We are English Heritage members so this entire amazing day cost nothing!

Thanks for a great show on Sunday at Caldicot. Really enjoyed all of it, but I was particularly impressed by the high standard of combat you achieved in very difficult circumstances. Storming stuff!

Saw the show today at Kenilworth Castle and thought it was fantastic. Amazing costumes, armour and weapons, something for all the family to enjoy. Thank you all for a great day.
