The Battle Of Edgehill – 19-21 October 2018 Kineton Sports and Social Club

October 19, 2018 @ 20:00 - October 21, 2018 @ 20:00

Our final planned event of the 2018 season commemorating the Battle of Edgehill; one of the opening battles of the English Civil War.

Both the Royalist and the Parliament Armies stumbled upon the other side and fought an inconclusive battle with equal losses.  Both sides further distinguished themselves with many soldiers falling out of formation to flee or to loot the baggage carts.

Oliver Cromwell turned up too late to take part in the battle writing to John Hampden:

Your troopers are most of them old decayed servingmen and tapsters; and their [the Royalists] troopers are gentlemen’s sons, younger sons and persons of quality….

The Reenactment takes place at the Kineton Sports and Social club in Warwickshire with a beer festival,  bar and food available all weekend.
