Scampston Hall - The Big August Bank Holiday Battle

Sunday 25 August

Monday 26 August


 This August Bank Holiday the Sealed Knot are returning to Scampston Hall, following our highly popular event in 2017.

This stunning estate will again echo to the sounds of an English Civil War battle, as we re-create the Battle of Marston Moor.

Yorkshire is rich in Civil War history and Marston Moor, fought 375 years ago this year, was one of the decisive battles of a war that divided our nation.

This beautiful estate will echo to the sound of musket and cannon fire, the steady beat of the drums, the charge of cavalry and the clash of pike. Our living history camp will bring to life both military and civilian life during the 17th century.

Entry (Sealed Knot battle and living history)
£5 per person for 16’s and over
FREE for those under 16

Tickets are available on the gate or can be booked in advance here
