Civil War troops prepare for battle

Shoppers in Marlborough on Saturday (June 29) should not be alarmed to see musket carrying soldiers in English Civil War uniforms patrolling the High Street.


The soldiers are all re-enactors and members of the English Civil War Society. They are visiting to promote the 'Battle of Marlborough' re-enactment weekend to be held next month – July 27 and 28.

 

There will also be an information stall on the market which will give a taste of what to expect.

 

The aim is to bring the seventeenth century alive and will include: a living history encampment in Priory Gardens, an opportunity to witness seventeenth century dining and customs and to visit a display in the exhibition room at The Merchant’s House and a grand parade by part of the Army and Cavalry marching to the battlefield on The Common (Saturday only).

 

The major event is the re-enactment of the Battle of Marlborough in 1642, Royalists v Parliamentarians, during the afternoons of Saturday, 27 and Sunday, 28 July.  

 

The event is free to attend and is definitely not to be missed.
