Catton Hall, South Derbyshire

August 28, 2016 - August 29, 2016

This August Bank Holiday weekend, The Sealed Knot comes to Catton Hall for a spectacular weekend of historical reenactment and entertainment.

Let us take you back to the year of 1642 when our staunch Royalists are attacked by Parliament forces all in the name of democracy.  Cromwell has sacked the High Sherriff of Derbyshire due to his allegiance to Charles 1 and the power to rule is finely balanced.

Some fact, some fiction but an experience not to be missed as the roar of Cannons reverberates across the battlefield, Lord Generals deploy their troops and the mighty battle flows to and fro.
Who will win, who will lose, who will die, who will survive the answer to these questions can only be found at this Spectacular event by the largest re-enactment Society in Europe.

The battle alone is entertaining but to add to your enjoyment we have an ‘authentic’ Living History Camp where members of the Society will be demonstrating trades and crafts of the period and character actors will be making Cameo appearances.  The Kings Entourage is just one of these Cameo performances to keep you entertained.

We open at 11am both Sunday 28th and Monday 29th August with a full programme each day to entertain you along with a Beer Tent and other attractions.
