Past Events – 2019
Wentworth Woodhouse, South Yorkshire: 5th & 6th May
We enjoyed ourselves in the wonderful setting of Wentworth Woodhouse – many thanks to Lisles, Manchesters, Scots and assorted other regiments (Lilburnes) who came to support this event.
Deene Park, Northamptonshire: 26th & 27th May
This Major Muster event was hosted by Lord Robartes’ Regiment and Waller’s Brigade and set in the grounds of the splendid Deene Park, home of the Brudenell family. There was Living History and a Battle on both Sunday and Monday, the battle on each day was set in 1643 when the house was owned by Lord Thomas Brudenell a supporter of the Royalist cause, but each one had a slightly different scenario – Sunday the Royalist Army attacked down the hill, Monday it was the turn of the Parliamentary Army.
Bolsover Castle, Derbyshire: 8th & 9th June
Coming together again with our friends in Lisle’s regiment, we returned to our regimental home of Bolsover Castle. Each day we showed what life was like during a 17th Century siege, with an authentic Living History camp, drill displays, have-a-go Soldier’s Drill and 2 skirmishes during the afternoon; telling the story of the encounter between the two opposing forces in the siege.
Cropredy Bridge, Oxfordshire: 29th & 30th June
Another 375th Anniversary muster, this time in the village of Cropredy near Banbury in Oxfordshire. The original battle was fought on 29th June 1644 between a Royalist army led by King Charles and a Parliamentarian army under the command of Sir William Waller. The Sealed Knot will be taking over much of Cropredy, putting on Living History displays & with Battles both Saturday & Sunday, check out http://www.cropredy375.uk/ for more details, including an event timetable (we’re open 10:30am to 4pm).
