As anticipation mounts ahead of the big re-enactment weekend on 18-19 September, we’re delighted to announce the full programme of displays which are occurring on each day. There’s plenty to see (and hear!).
As well as the timetabled shows, the living history camps themselves will be open all day from 11am-5pm, giving you the chance to wander through the tent lines and talk to the soldiers. You’ll be able to look for General Cope in his tent, or try to secure an audience with the Prince at his pavilion.
There’ll also be information on the clans and regiments present at the battle inside the marquee, along with a number of stalls and children’s craft activities.
Why not bring a picnic too, so you can enjoy the full day of presentations with the whole family.
