There is a park in Gillingham near where I live that hosts The Will Adams Festival every year. William Adams was born in Gillingham, Kent in England and this festival celebrates his life and his voyage to Japan in 1600. This is a great festival for families with children wanting a day out. It's free entry every year and you only have to pay for certain activities and they don't break the bank.
The first few pictures were supposed to be of a kite but you can barely see it.
These are long shot of the park.
A film crew turned up as well but I was not sure if they were student or from a company.
This video is of an example of sword fighting and so are this sections pictures.
They had tents that should you how the trades and skills were managed during times Will Adams was alive.
There were Martial arts displays from local clubs and not so local clubs.
