On the 8th and 9th July 2017, thousands of reenactors, entertainers and traders from all over Europe will gather in Tewkesbury for Europe’s largest annual Medieval re-enactment of the Battle of Tewkesbury on the original battlefield.
The Battle Of Tewkesbury took place on 4 May 1471 and was the final battle in the War Of The Roses between the Houses of York and Lancaster. Prince Edward was killed either during or just after the battle and is now buried in Tewkesbury Abbey.
The festival has period entertainment, including music, dance and drama as well as a collection of fascinating characters from the past. These may include barber surgeons, preachers and even the odd dragon keeper. There is a children’s activity area, with period based arts and craft sessions, and an exhibition tent with displays from organisations specialising in different aspects of history.
If you fancy Glamping a short distance from Tewkesbury do give us a call. We happily accept Lancastrians and Yorkist’s as long as you hold a truce whist with us
