Events

This weekend Bradgate Park near Leicester will come alive with a FREE* Living History weekend!

From 10.30am to 4pm on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September, the Sealed Knot will recreate how the Earl of Stamford and his son, Lord Grey - both senior figures in the Parliamentarian Arm - played a role in the English Civil Wars.

A living history encampment will be established on the flat meadows in the centre of the park. Mock skirmishes will take place around 2-2.30pm. There will be displays and information in the encampment, plus period music in the ruins of Bradgate House, which will also be open.

This all adds up to a great educational and fun free day out!


*Please note whilst admission is free there is a £4 car park charge for the whole day at the Cropston, Hunts Hill and Newtown Linford car parks.
