See the history of warfare in action from Medieval to Modern Day with living history encampments, drills, weaponry displays, firearms evolution and period battles taking place on the 19th/20th September 2015
We have assembled some of the very best re-enactment groups in the UK, including the Sealed Knot, the Southern Skirmish Association, The Great War Society, 29th Infantry Division, elite units for the Napoleonic Association and the best medieval groups all under our roof to offer you a truly spectacular day of non-stop entertainment. Medieval, Napoleonic, First World War, English and American Civil War, are just some of the periods in history you’ll see brought to life by these skilled re-enactors.
Enjoy a packed programme of activities from 10am each day as we take you on a tour of history with drill displays, battle re-enactment and spectacular sieges.
Each group will be camped around the battlefield you will be free to wander around and find out what life was life for soldiers and civilians alike from 1415 to 1945.
The finale of each day will be a grand parade of all of our re-enactment groups bringing everyone together for a fantastic photographic opportunity during a short drum-head memorial to remember our fallen soldiers and civilians throughout conflicts past and present.
There will also be a 30 minute arena display each day, showcasing a selection of Tank Museum vehicles, from the First World War, Cold War and Second World War.
