Warwick School is located within Warwick Town and as such is proud of the part it plays in the local community. Warwick School is delighted to have been involved in the creation of an annual Town Festival. We hope this year's Guy of Warwick Festival will be attended by many students and their parents.
Warwick Festival – Celebrating Guy of Warwick
Friday 25th - Monday 28th May 2018
Warwick attractions have united to launch a new Warwick Festival to celebrate the legend of Guy of Warwick, over the May Bank Holiday weekend, with a packed schedule of events around the town.
There will be a series of activities including historic tours, banquets, exhibitions, Guy of Warwick crafts, town stalls, and an extra special parade, themed around the Guy of Warwick legend, from Warwick Racecourse into the town on Monday 28 May.
The area’s leading attraction, Warwick Castle, will see its expert History Team deliver entertaining insights into Guy of Warwick – the legend of Guy, his quest for love of Princess Felice from the Castle and all the monsters he encountered during his travels. Tours run throughout the weekend and are included in the Castle’s ticket price.
Lord Leycester Hospital
The original spectacular Medieval building hosts a Guy of Warwick themed lavish extravaganza of food, drink and entertainment from the middle ages to kickstart the celebrations from 7pm to 12am (midnight) on Saturday 26 May 2018. Dress for the occasion in your most glamourous medieval outfit (modern day glamour works too) and meet Guy of Warwick and Lady Felice as we travel back in time. The grand feast has limited tickets available, on sale now, £70 per person.
To continue the Guy of Warwick festivities, on Sunday 26 May join us for a Medieval Courtyard Party from 12-4pm with Medieval food, music, knights and falcons, and ferret racing. Tickets at the door for £6.50.
