Re-enactment of battle and siege of Weymouth

Soldiers will stage a Civil War re-enactment of the Siege and Battle of Weymouth. (See previous blog entry Commemoration Event of the Battle of Weymouth 1645 and the Crabchurch Conspiracy )

Up to 30 musketeers and pikemen will march to the site of the clash outside the Old Town Hall as part of a day of ‘living history’ activities.

The extravaganza will take place on Saturday to mark the Battle of Weymouth on February 27 in 1645.
