Things get gruesome in the Medieval Faire’s Torture Chamber

Experience a feast for the senses in this interactive museum of cruelty and gore.

Guests at this year’s St Ives Medieval Faire will be invited to experience the sights and sounds of a medieval torture chamber.

Hosted by a menacing executioner, the chamber will feature nine areas, full of countless gruesome devices of torture and medical experimentation.

Visitors will be able to get comfortable on ‘The Rack’, or try on a pair of menacing cuffs for the perfect photo opportunity. Those who look a little shifty are advised to stay clear of the executioner, as he is keen for company.

Parents are warned that the Torture Chamber will perhaps be a little grown up for the Faire’s younger visitors.

However, the Torture Chamber is just one of many hands on activities at the faire – with young and old encouraged to try their hand at archery – at both the archery range and the exciting sport of archery tag.

Kids can also learn useful skills to help them become a knight, or even a jester. People who love to move can learn fun and easy historic dances, while crafters will enjoy making fabric buttons in the Medieval Village.

The St Ives Medieval Faire takes place at St Ives Showground on 23 and 24 September 2017.
