Hello, hello! We’re back again after a bit of a blog hiatus, sorry about that! We’re all back on track and will be keeping you updated with what we get up to over the Summer.
Last weekend we all headed to the beautiful grounds of the Compton Verney Estate, just outside Kineton in Warwickshire for the first of our 375th Anniversary events, which you’ll see more and more of over the coming years. This weekend it was to re-enact the Battle of Edgehill which happened on the 23rd October 1642.
August Bank Holiday has rolled around for this year and once again it was our biggest event of the year. This year we were at the beautiful Scampston Hall in North Yorkshire and we had a wonderful weekend with a particularly memorable (or in some cases a little hazy!) cocktail party!
This year we had the pleasure of going back to Newark, a muster we also did back in 2015. Once again, it was hot hot hot and we enjoyed a weekend in the sunshine.
Late MayBank Holiday events are always a major affair for the society and having only seen each other 4 weeks previously at our event at Kenilworth, it was lovely to see each other again so soon.
The Wiltshire location was beautiful and the battle took place in front of the house and we had to cross the estate’s private air strip to get from our campsite to the field!
Our next event is very nearly here and it’s the first Major Muster of the season! We’re all getting very excited and ready to take to the field and fight hard once again on the Sunday and Monday of this upcoming Bank Holiday Weekend.
This weekend, you’ll find us at the beautiful Charlton Park estate, just near Malmesbury in Wiltshire. The ancestral home of the Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire, this beautiful house was built out of the Abbey of Malmesbury when it was sold off in 1539 at the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
