Kingston Maurward Regency Weekend

The wonderful setting of the Kingston Maurward estate plays host to a Regency Weekend, Saturday September 27th and Sunday 28th 2008. Over the weekend, there will be an exciting recreation of a Regency period Fair with many different Historical participants.

There will be an authentic Living History Encampment which gave a fascinating insight into the world of Napoleon, George III, and the Duke of Wellington.

In attendance will be some allied army units from England, including the famous Green Jackets of the Rifle Brigade, made popular by the TV Series "Sharpe's Rifles". We have also got the Sharpe Appreciation Society with many items used during the filming of the series

For those of you who want a "behind the scenes" look at the filming, Jason Salkey (AKA Rifleman Harris) will be selling his video diaries.

Many visitors will be able to wander through the encampments, and pick up a memory from the Historical Marketplace at this superb Event.

So, walk in the footsteps of King George III, and visit this wonderful event in it's historic setting of Kingston Maurward House, near Dorchester, Dorset.................HUZZA!!!
