Sunday 30 April & Bank Holiday Monday 1 May 2017
Over 300 civil war re-enactors will descend on Newark during early May Bank Holiday as the clock is turned back to the turbulent mid-17th century.
The 3rd Annual Pikes and Plunder Civil War Festival will take place on 30 April and 1 May 2017 with over a dozen regiments taking part alongside two artillery companies, a baggage train and scores of living history exponents making the 2017 Festival an even bigger spectacle than before.
The historic Queen's Sconce fort – built in 1644 - will be the stunning venue for musket fire and fighting, whilst Newark Castle hosts major living history displays, recreating the dark days when the besieged citizens of Newark struggled to cope with food shortages. Here at the National Civil War Centre there will also be exciting demonstrations to bring the period vividly back to life.
The National Civil War Centre is organising this incredible event in partnership with the English Civil War Society to ensure that this will be an unforgettable experience with musketeers, pikemen, cannons and colour across the town. It is certain to be a truly exciting and immersive way for all ages to spend the Bank Holiday weekend.
FREE admission to events at the Castle and Sconce. Events at National Civil War Centre are FREE with standard admission.
