English civil war action this weekend

As usual the bank holiday weekend sees the two major civil war groups up to their usual pike and shot tricks. The Sealed Knot are at York doing the Battle of Marston Moor as part of a week long civil war event. The English Civil War Society are at the Military Odyssey in Kent which boasts of being the largest multi period show in the world!

I would love to be there! For either one. I'm doing quite a bit of research and work right now on the late war and the restoration and would love to see the reenactments. Have fun Ralphus (I assume you'll find a way to one of them?)
