The Newport Pagnell Civil War Weekend

The Newport Pagnell Civil War Weekend will take place over Bank Holiday August 28–29, 2016 and is a community event presented by a committee of local people and the English Civil War Society. Its aim is to bring to life the town’s significant role in the Civil War in an entertaining and educational way. The event has support and sponsorship from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Newport Pagnell Town Council, Milton Keynes Council, Bury Field Commoners Association, Milton Keynes Community Foundation, and many local companies and organisations.
Suitable for families, school parties, history buffs or just a fun day out… ‘armies’ of Roundheads and Cavaliers will recreate the Civil War at Newport Pagnell over Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday with cannons, cavalry, pike and musket – all the sounds and fury of battle, live commentary, spectators’ arena, ‘living history’ displays, market place, refreshments. Large crowds are expected; follow the signs.
