The free* to enter 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. Thousands of residents and visitors are expected to attend to experience life in the 13th century and witness a battle which was instrumental in leading to the democracy we know today.

The action-packed weekend will include hundreds of re-enactors fighting ‘to the death’ on both days. The Battle of Evesham Grand Parade, with mounted knights in full armour will wind its way through the town on the Saturday morning.

Various stalls and food outlets will be selling a range of dishes and snacks plus there will be a licenced bar.
