Please note displays are weather dependent - talks will replace displays if inclement, every display is different.
Join Albion Historical Falconry and their talented birds of prey to discover more about the Roman mythology of birds.
During the falconry displays there'll be demonstrations of how hawks and falcons hunt in the air and on the ground. You'll also discover how early Britons used birds of prey for hunting, trading, forging alliances, intimidating enemies and controlling nature.
You can visit the mews tent to get up close to the stationary birds. The falconers will be on hand to answer any questions.
