The Battle of Hastings Re-enactment

October 12 - October 13

This October, step into the scene of England’s most famous battle. Witness warriors clash and mud fly as over 300 re-enactors bring the Battle of Hastings to life on the very spot where it was fought in 1066.

Take the day to explore all the action in the rival Saxon and Norman camps. See the chain mail and weaponry makers while they’re hard at work. And meet the falconers and their birds of prey alongside them. Weave your way through the tents where there’s food to prepare, logs to chop and clothes to mend. Come and see – and smell – what’s cooking.

Kids can take up arms and try their hand at archery or join in sword school. And don’t miss the dramatic retelling of the Bayeux Tapestry.

Then take your spot for the highlight of the day as the hard-hitting armies clash in combat and battle rages.
