CIVIL war re-enactments will be part of the fun and games at a Middle Ages event this weekend.

Sir Frederic Osborn School will be the scene of a siege as the Medieval Siege Society comes to WGC tomorrow (Saturday).

There will be four re-enactments of battles from the War of the Roses, as well as a living history encampment and a siege camp where weapons, cooking and armour will be made.

There will also be a host of other things to do and see, which includes arena events, sword displays, archery demos, and a range of medieval trade, food and drink stalls.

Visitors to the Herns Lane school are also welcome to bring their own picnic.

The event, which runs from 10am until 5pm on Saturday and until 4pm on Sunday, is £15 for a family of two adults and three children, or £6 for just adults and £5 for children under 16 and concessions.
