"Living History in Worcester" (Multiperiod)
Provisional Booking

Re-enactors from all around the country come together to present "Living History in Worcester".

Originally an indoor "show and tell" based at the Guildhall, the event has now grown and is spread over several historic buildings as well as having outdoor elements. The central base, however, is the Commandery - the Royalist Headquarters during the Battle of Worcester in 1651.

Re-enactors of dozens of periods set up scenarios to educate and entertain at each venue.
