Experience 2,000 years of history in one weekend at our flagship event this July.
Ever wanted to find yourself in the middle of a live-action historical blockbuster? This summer, you'll get your chance as over 2,000 re-enactors and performers bring the story of England to life over one action-packed weekend.
With thrilling battles, spectacular displays, living encampments from Roman times to the Second World War, silly jesters, gladiators and jousting, there's non-stop entertainment throughout the weekend. 

Kids will enjoy all the fun of the Victorian Fair, plus cave painting, the chance to become a knight, and even a ride in our hobby horse joust. 

With live music, food stalls, a real ale bar and an historic market, there's a festival atmosphere at History Live! for everyone to enjoy.

History Live! History Live! History Live!
