Discover what life was like in Bradford during the War of the Roses at a medieval living history weekend at Bolling Hall.

 For the second year, re-enactment group the Frei Compagnie will present a weekend of domestic and military demonstrations of life during the 15th century conflict. The free event will be held at the Bradford Council historic home on Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm.

 It will include longbow archery and firepower demonstrations, the opportunity to watch a knight prepare for battle as he dons his armour, and the chance to learn about falconry. A doctor will also be on hand to dispense gruesome medical remedies.
