Warfare Through The Ages 2016

from Medieval to the Present Day

6th August 2016 - 7th August 2016

In association with:

See the history of warfare in action from Medieval to Modern day with living history encampments, drills, weaponry displays, firearms evolution and period battles.

We have assembled some of the very best re-enactment groups in the UK, including the Sealed Knot, the Southern Skirmish Association and the elite units for the Napoleonic Association 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.

Site opens at 9am each day. Enjoy a packed programme of activities from 10am 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 like for soldiers and civilians alike from 1415 to 1945.

At the start of the afternoon arena displays each day there will be a grand parade of all of our re-enactment groups bringing everyone together for a fantastic photographic opportunity. 

The final arena display will be a 30 minute display of vehicles from The Tank Museum*. 

*The appearance of all our historic machines in the display is subject to mechanical availability on the day. 

Annual Passes ARE valid for this event.
