EVENTS

The Battle of Worcester Society is committed to bringing the fascinating and vital heritage behind the battle of 1651 to life for all members of the public. We have organised re-enactments, lectures, services, workshops, performances, radio docu-dramas, and much, much more since being founded in 2003. Members of the public are welcome at all our events throughout the year but society members are normally given a priority booking period with events that require ticketing. They are also offered discounts on all events (sometimes events are free to members) so why not look into becoming a member and take advantage of what the society has to offer?
