The History Group have been busy recently as we gear up for our Agincourt themed History Weekend in September. The programme is looking great and we can now confirm that we have Professor Anne Curry coming to talk at Hay Castle about the Battle of Agincourt. Tickets are now available on our website. We have also secured Bob Woosnam-Savage who will be talking about weapons and armour on the Friday night after a screening of Olivier's Henry V at Booth's Cinema.

Hay Tours have also been busy - alongside the growing menu of walking tours around Hay they are now offering guided tours of Hay Castle in partnership with Hay Castle Trust. These tours take place every Thursday at 11am and cost £5 for adults (accompanied children are free) There is no need to book - just turn up at the rear lawns of the Castle at 10.50 and a guide will meet you there.
