This year we are working with the English Heritage horses housed at Audley End House in preparation for an event about Victorian High Society. We have more rehearsals this month and hope to progress towards incorporating our goshawk into the mounted hawking display – that would be quite a coup! If we manage it you will be able to witness something extremely rare on 30th June/1st July at Audley End House.

It’s an early Easter this year so our season kicks off in late March with a 4 day visit to Rievaulx Abbey in North Yorkshire; we will be demonstrating Medieval Falconry from Good Friday to Easter Monday. We then visit Dunster Castle in Somerset for 3 days of Victorian Falconry from Tuesday 3rd April although the first day will be presented by Ben and James from The Falconry School. We finish the Easter holidays back up north at Alnwick Castle. We shall all need a holiday afterwards!

Anyone thinking about coming to the Festive Falconry Event today (27th December) DON’T !! The heavy snow, 50 mph gusts and -5 windchill has put a stop to plans. Conditions on site are too dangerous to host the event. The snow is due to disappear overnight so we will be back on site as planned on the 28th and 29th although the grounds may be flooded so be prepared for it to be wet and muddy underfoot!
