The Bloodier Battle of Valence

The fight for King and country returns, and it’s bigger and bloodier than ever!

Two-days filled with family fun including:

  • demonstrations of 17th century firepower with muskets and cannon
  • a living history camp showing what life was like during the English Civil War
  • learn the art of fighting with pike
  • daring displays by the mounted cavalry
  • have a go at traditional Civil War era dance
  • a huge battle between the Royalist and Parliamentarian forces, which involves over 500 soldiers

Who will win?
