After having our fill we were then able to saunter along Tarrant street and the main high street as the roads were closed off for the Arundel festival, which is on until Monday, offering street entertainment, culture and fun for all the family.
We however were off to the castle for it's 'History in Action' event. Set on the lower lawns of Arundel castle it's a multi period look at life, costumes and combat spanning over 2,000 years with a grand finale battle between the Roman Gladiators, Saxons, Crusaders and 15th Century archers among other historical characters.
It's a great atmosphere with the encampments of Raven Tor living history group and the Company of St Barbara set up in the grounds and the medieval castle walls as a backdrop. It was definitely a hit with our two making history come to life and more exciting than a text book lesson!
I kept it casual with my H&M blue cotton shirt, Zara skinny ripped jeans and Matt Bernson KM gladiators, well I have to stick to the theme! I accessorized with my Z for Accessorize 'Positano' bracelet and Sophie Anderson woven shoulder bag matching the pop of pink in the pattern with my toe polish.
