Festival Description

The most Foolish Event of its kind! Four hundred years ago Muncaster was home to the original Tom Fool and in his honour Muncaster hosts 5 days of madness and mayhem as Jesters, Street entertainers and various colourful characters surround the Castle with much Tomfoolery! Enjoy the Foolish Fair with side shows, bouncy castle, the Foolish Flyer Zip Wire, face painting and daily circus workshops for children of all ages. Muncaster’s usual facilities will all be open plus a Bar and BBQ. The Festival culminates with the International Jesters Tournament held on the final day when the Fool of Muncaster 2011 will be crowned by current Australian Fool Mr Spin from a cast of foolish competitors. The World Owl Centre will be holding a quiz and caption competition and have art displays.
