Not a Barnet Cycling event per se, but the Barnet Medieval Festival returns to Barnet Elizabethans Rugby Football ground and the Byng Road Playing Fields on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June. This community history event will feature over 350 re-enactors, a living history camp, combat and weaponry displays, battle scenes, a medieval market, children’s activities, community stalls and refreshments. The Medieval Festival is organised by the Barnet Medieval Festival Committee, a charity which aims to educate the public about battle that was fought just north of Chipping Barnet on 14 April 1471 during the Wars of the Roses.
Limited public parking in Christ Church Primary School playing field and vehicles will be directed to enter and exit the field at the top gate. Avoid the hassle and cycle right up and into the fields – watch out for flying arrows and spears in the battles which can puncture tyres!! Battles and displays including smoke and loud bangs will take place in the arena between 11am and 5pm.
