Historic Combat Festival at Lulworth Castle Park

Budding Time Travellers can step back in time at this brand NEW exciting multi-period ‘Historic Combat Festival’ event, on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th September, in the grounds of Lulworth Castle. Re-enactors from the Roman and Medieval periods as well as soldiers from the 17th Century and the 19th Century Zulu War will be bringing this colourful and action packed Historic Combat Festival to life by offering visitors the opportunity to ‘walk through time’, answer questions and discover life from the past.

Expect all the sights, sounds and smells of the periods, as over 100 re-enactors in authentic costume bring you combat displays, introduce you to all aspects of life in the living history encampments including music and dance, crafts and cooking, as well as Artillery through the ages by the Star Gun Company (one of the largest collections of working Black powder cannon in Europe).

To create a real sense of living conditions at that time the re-enactors will work, cook, eat, fight and sleep on site. All are welcome to join in the merriment, marvel at the past and interact with the historical re-enactors at this exciting, entertaining and educational festival. Open Saturday 13th from 10.30am to 6.00pm and Sunday 10.30am to 4.00pm. Normal admission prices apply and include entry to the Animal Farm, Children’s Adventure Play Park, 18th Century Chapel and Grounds.
