Cromwell is coming!
A great family event – wander around the Civil War encampment taking in the smells and sounds of the Parliamentary troops and their followers.
Colonel John Pickering and his fearsome Regiment of Foote take up residence for the weekend at Castle Bromwich Historic Gardens. Learn how they cooked, looked after their weapons and wove their clothes. Lots of displays and demonstrations and drills to take part in.
The first battle (1642) of English Civil War was fought just 4 miles away from the Gardens. This weekend Colonel John Pickering is back!
Let your imagination float back 300 years through the sound and smell of muskets and camp fire smoke…
