The IMCF World Championships will see competitors from all over the world travel to Scotland and attend Scone Palace.

This is the first time the event will be held in the U.K as teams will participate in full contact medieval battles, duelling, team fights and archery during a four-day event inside Scone Palace.

At least 25,000 visitors are expected to attend the event between 10th of May -13th of May, where the event will see 500 competitors and 500 officials from 31 countries worldwide, from the UK to as far afield as Australia, South Africa and Mexico.

Stephen Brannigan, Head of House Opening at Scone Palace, said: “Full-contact medieval combat is a truly fascinating sport immersed in medieval history which fits beautifully with our rich past stretching many hundreds of years. It will be like stepping into another time and we hope many visitors of all ages will enjoy experiencing the IMCF World Championships, here at Scone Palace.”
