About us

Barnet Medieval Festival is organised by the Barnet Medieval Festival Committee, a registered charity formed with the aim of advancing the education of the public in the history of medieval life and warfare, with a focus on the history of the town of Barnet. It took on the role of organising the Festival from the Battle of Barnet Partnership (Barnet Museum, The Barnet Society and The Battlefields Trust), which delivered the Battle of Barnet Project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Trustees of the Barnet Medieval Festival Committee would like to thank Barnet Council, The Battlefields Trust, individual donors and the public for their generous support of the 2019 Festival.
