Enjoy a medieval Christmas in Dudley this month

Posted on:

Dudley Markets will be putting on a medieval air this month thanks to a joint event between Tudor Markets and Dudley Council.

The two-day event on 11 and 12 December will see Dudley’s regular market traders joined by a host of medieval themed entertainers.

Shoppers making the most of the market’s regular offer of fruit and veg, toys, clothes, treats and stocking fillers will also be entertained by knights in armour, juggling and fire-eating jesters and a medieval doctor touting authentic medieval remedies.

The entertainment will run at various times over the two-day event with the chance to witness up-close demonstrations of weaponry and armour, medieval medicine and joking jesters. Some additional traditional marker traders are expected to join the already well-established and popular regulars on Saturday, while Sunday will host the ever-popular car boot sale.

Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said:

We’re really pleased to be working with Tudor to provide this unique two-day event. It’s important that we support our town centre businesses and market traders and we hope this Medieval spectacular will prove a real draw for shoppers and families.
The entertainment varies every day so it’s definitely worth coming into town on both days. We hope that people will support the event and their local businesses and traders.

Scott Simpson, Tudor Markets, said:

We are excited for people to come to the Medieval Market this weekend. Dudley has a wealth of history and what better to experience it than up and close. We hope people come and enjoy the range of entertainment whilst supporting the traders and the town.

The days are set to run from 9 - 5 on Saturday 11 and 9 – 2 on Sunday 12 December.
