Travel back in time and experience Berkeley Castle in the midst of Civil War, for a fantastic Easter weekend of living history that promises to be fun for whole family.
Throwing it back to 1642, when King Charles I and Parliament battled it out for control of the English government, visitors can enjoy a whole host of historical activities taking place from Saturday 8 to Monday 10 April 2023.
Local people are being recruited to join the garrison – some less enthusiastically than others! – with living history performers bringing the seventeenth-century conflict to life.
There’s exhilarating arena displays, putting armies on horse and foot through their paces; as well as period music, have-a-go dancing and plenty of children’s activities to get involved with.
Civil War at Berkeley Caste is included in the price of admission, with tickets available to book via berkeley-castle.com or on arrival.
