After popular demand, Tutbury Castle is once again staging an enchanting fairytale event this August Bank Holiday weekend.

This gorgeous 11th century Royal Castle will have actors in glittering costume to greet visitors in the grounds from the pages of your favourite nursery rhyme and bedtime story – no matter how old you are this will be an enchanting event.

Knights in armour and nursery book characters will rub shoulders with fairies and pixies. There is story time throughout the day in the Great Hall and lots of fairy cakes for sale in our tea room where mums and dads and grandmas and grandpas can have their wish come true with a cup of tea!

Enjoy a picnic on our green lawn, or come to our pretty tea room serving a range of hot and cold food – all reasonably priced. Our BBQ, Bar and ice cream stall will also be open.
