Step back in time with us to the 13th Century when the Battle of Evesham is brought to life. The free to attend event, takes place in the Heart of Evesham, featuring a medieval festival and camp with life-demonstrations of cookery, weapons and medicine, plus the main battle re-enactment.
The action-packed weekend will include hundreds of re-enactors fighting ‘to the death’. The Battle of Evesham Grand Parade, with mounted knights in full armor will wind its way through the town the Saturday on Evesham’s Crown Meadow, visitors can watch medieval musicians and dancing at the camp, along with craftsmen demonstrations and medieval cookery.
In addition, next to the camp, there will be falconry and equestrian displays, treasure trails and children’s activities. Various stalls and food outlets will be selling a range of dishes and snacks plus there will be a licenced bar.
The Battle itself was fought on 4 August 1265, 50 years after the Magna Carta between Prince Edward and Simon de Montfort. It was political, personal and bloody! The Prince wanted to free his father King Henry III and take revenge on a man who is credited with starting the first Parliament.
The Battle of Evesham Medieval Festival will mainly be based in Crown Meadow (shown on the map below) plus activities and attractions in various places in the town centre, including; Vine Mews, St Lawrence’s Church, The Almonry, All Saints Church, Market Square, Bridge Street and Spiritus.
