The Barons' Revolt took place on July 6th and 7th on the Memorial Hall playing fields in Clun. The Norman re-enactment group, Conroi de Vey, came from Nottingham and displayed a wide range of crafts and skills in the Norman period of 1300. Their presentations were much enjoyed by visitors of all ages who learnt about the Norman way of life and what it would have been like in about 1300. The unusually hot weather made it very hard work for the chainmail-clad knights but that did not stop the baddies being booed and the goodies cheered. Walks were led to Clun Castle and the weekend was much enjoyed by all. These recordings were made during the weekend with members of the group and they describe their own skills and activities.
