Script in English

MVO: I am the Warwick Minstrel, with a story to present.

This half term at Warwick Castle, there’s the Plague and Pox Event.

Enjoy death and disease, in the middles ages.

With Grave Diggers and Jailers too, but beware, beware of the Gong Farmer, with his buckets of steaming poo-hoo-hoo.

Catch pestilence a plenty at Warwick Castle, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen.

It’s Britain’s greatest mediaeval experience, off the M40 at Junction 15.


Brief Explanation

In English Mediaeval times a common way of sharing a message to the masses was to use a
‘Minstrel’, a lyrical storyteller who would travel around villages sharing his tale. In keeping with
the authentic experience at Warwick Castle to advertise the ‘PLAGUE & POX’ event we use the
same Mediaeval story telling technique on radio to encourage people to visit.
