LEARNING ABOUT THE BATTLE

The society's chief aim is to educated people about the Battle of Worcester 1651 and its ramifications regionally, nationally and internationally. We achieve this through a number of different ways. Re-enactment, lectures, theatrical plays, school visits, talks and publications all form part of strategy to educate as many people as possible about this incredible part of the UK's history. 

We have curated a number of resources, downloads and links to events and other societies and groups that we believe can help you learn about the Battle of Worcester 1651. We have indicated (where possible) whether the resources are free or paid.
