A popular Mid Wales attraction is celebrating the launch of the long-awaited King Arthur – Legend of The Sword film with a special offer to visitors next month.
King Arthur’s Labyrinth, based at Corris Craft Centre, near Machynlleth, will give free admission to visitors who are suitably dressed in King Arthur costumes during the film release weekend, May 12-14.
The new film, which was partly filmed in Snowdonia, is directed by Guy Richie and hopes to be the next Warner Bros box office hit.
Ian Rutherford, director at King Arthur’s Labyrinth, which is located on the southern edge of Snowdonia, said: “The release of this new King Arthur film couldn’t be more timely as Wales is celebrating its Year of Legends and everyone is thinking of legends and looking for legendary experiences.
“We’re offering a free visit to King Arthur’s Labyrinth from May 12–14 for all visitors dressed in Arthurian costumes. For men and boys, we are thinking a full knight’s outfit, possibly chainmail, helmet and mock swords and for ladies and girls a Guinevere style dress and period headwear.”
For visitors who have arrived in King Arthur and Guinevere style costumes over the weekend, there will also be free tastings of Afon Mêl Welsh Mead, now produced at the New Quay Honey Farm. It was the legendary drink consumed by King Arthur and his men before charging into battle.
King Arthur’s Labyrinth is open daily from 10am to 4.45pm, when the last boat leaves reception.
