The weekend of June 26th to 27th June was packed with entertainment in the village of Goodrich, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire with both children's medieval entertainment at the Castle and a music festival at the village school. On this page you can see photographs of medieval tile making in the chapel of the castle, 'Have a go Archery' in the castle moat, children crafting swords from willow and Mark Cooper's performance of the story of Robin Hood. The music festival is covered here.

Having had a busy weekend, I was unable to take the usual hundreds of photographs and just attended both events very briefly on Sunday afternoon to take a few. I know from the personal experience of having had to cancel my usual Saturday Ross Market that the weather was appalling on Saturday but Sunday was fine and both events seemed to be proving extremely popular and entertaining.
