Help us celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Bridgend Market Charter this Saturday, the 17th of September, by taking part in the Bridgend 500 Tudor Fayre!
The event will commemorate the granting of the first market charter by none other than King Henry VIII. Bridgend Townsfolk will be given many opportunities to meet and greet King Henry on his Royal Progress around Town.
The Town Centre will be transformed into a typical Tudor market of the era with over 20 demonstrations of activities that were commonplace in the 16th century.
Workshops will include Tudor Pottery, Cooking, Leather Purse Making and Toy Making; together with Ink, Quill and Parchment making, Tudor Soap and Candle Making, Spinning, Weaving, Arrow Making and many more!
Tudor entertainment will take place throughout the day including traditional Tudor musicians, storytelling, the Court Jester and Falconry.
Visitors can also enjoy guided historical tours of Bridgend Town by local historian John Dunkley-Williams. The meeting point is at Carnegie House on Wyndham Street and tours start at 11am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 3pm.
This is guaranteed to be great fun for the entire family so don't miss out!
