KNIGHTS in shining armour and ladies fair will be wandering around the Rose City tomorrow, with Leslie Park set to be transformed into a medieval wonderland.

The Canton of Stegby, a group of locals with a strong interest in all things related to the era, has organised the Medieval Day on the Green.

Period clothing displays, sword fighting, martial arts, weaponry, music, cooking and medieval games will give visitors a taste of life in the Middle Ages.

Suzanne Usher, aka Lady Merewen, said the event was designed to allow people of all ages to see what the group was about. She added members of the group varied in age from six to 73.

"It is a great way to try new things that you might not have been able to before - it crosses a lot of boundaries," she said.

"There is a focus on chivalry and grace, which is great in a world that seems to be lacking in it."

The Day on the Green is to be held at Leslie Park tomorrow from 10am-3pm.
