Getting into the Medieval Spirit

I went to the Ludlow Medieval Fayre last weekend and really got into the medieval spirit in more ways than one.

I had an article published last year about the fayre and was surprised to see someone else had done similar this year which is great really as I guess magazine editors usually want to cover annual events like this so it's worth trying again, even if you have seen it done before.

The beautiful birds of prey are always there and you can have a hold for a few pounds

And the whole place takes on a really medieval Christmas atmosphere

Finally, I felt a little scared when I first saw this picture. No idea what that could be on my shoulder. The castle is said to have several ghostly visitors as well as the usual tourists. Perhaps this spirit was awakened by all the authentic sights and sounds of a Medieval castle.

Whatever it is I hope it stayed there. A parrot on the shoulder is one thing but I don't fancy carrying around a spirit!
