and live on Freeview channel 276
Visitors to the 900-year-old castle will be transported back to Kenilworth’s medieval prime with re-enactors and musical performances.
The event will be based around 1173 when King Henry II was abroad fighting his rebellious sons the King of France.
Back home, his officers were trying to keep the peace but Geoffrey de Clinton refused to give up Kenilworth Castle.
Visitors can discover a castle besieged and watch as rival knights clash in battle.
English Heritage events manager Ella Harrison said: "In the 13th century Kenilworth Castle was one of the country’s greatest fortresses, and the site of some truly historic sieges and battles.
"It looks set to be an unforgettable day out.”
