BIKE jousting and medieval cookery were among the events at a rip roaring cub scout jamboree at Framlingham castle.
More than 170 cubs went along to the day-long event at the weekend which also included a mock up of the Black Death.
Cub Scout Assistant County Commissioner Andrew Peck said: "The boys applied leeches to the plague victims. Actually the leeches took the form of sweets."
The more serious aim of the event, which attracted 45 packs from around Suffolk, was to encourage cubs to become scouts at the age of 10.

Mr Peck said: "The day was a bit more adventurous and was aimed at the older boys as a way of getting them to carry on scouting."
Cubs join up aged eight and become scouts two years later.
