Suffolk Swords Wow the Crowd at Suffolk Military Show

The Suffolk Swords attended the Suffolk Military Show for the first time in July 2023 and had a fantastic time. The additional space granted at the site (50m deep behind our pitch) allowed us to try out a new element to our combat demonstrations – a flat-shoot of archers against armoured knights! The crowds were wowed by the indomitable knights pushing forward under a hail of arrows and many people highlighted it to the event organisers as the best part of the Suffolk Military Show, meaning that we are hoping to repeat the feat when we return in July 2024. Here’s hoping that those archers are a little less painfully-accurate than they were last year!
