There will be a wide range of living historians covering some two thousand years of history from Celts to Romans through to the Wars of the Roses, English Civil War and the two World Wars. They will be demonstrating a number of activities from skills at arms through to historic cookery. Pupils will see and feel uniforms and equipment, learn about daily life from the past, traditional crafts and have a chance to see weapons in action and hear some bangs from Civil War muskets to British Second World War artillery firing.
Please note – no children will be allowed into the event site unless accompanied by an adult or within a school or college group; this means anyone under 16 years of age. There will be a clearly demarcated Lost Child Point in the Ticket & Information Tent.
