ANYONE heading to the Battle Mediaeval Fayre over the Bank Holiday may get the feeling they are being watched.

Seven ‘eyes’ have been hidden in Battle shop windows and visitors are invited to Find Harold’s Eyes for the chance to win a £50 Fat Face voucher.

Competition forms are in the Mediaeval Fayre leaflets which can be found in most shops in the town.

Meanwhile there will be a host of entertainment and stalls available at the event, which will take place on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May, 10am-5pm on the Abbey Green.

Hands on History, craft stalls, food stalls, face painting, pottery, a scarecrow workshop, leather wristband workshop, games, morris dancing, maypole dancing and fighting knights will all feature in the two day programme - and all are welcome to come and enjoy the fun.

Not to be missed is the parade down the High Street on Monday, including Battle’s very own May Queen, the young dancers from Battle and Langton School and the Section 5 Drummers.
