Battle Of Mortimers Cross

Mortimers Cross Re-enactmentBattle Of Mortimers Cross

History is dying.

Although it is, and will always remain, in the past, our history is becoming less well known as time passes. Children of a school age learn less and less about what has shaped our country and why we are the proud people that we are, or at least should be.

Time is a healer of great wounds, but at the same time it can bury those wounds in years of misinterpretation and ignorance. Re-enactors of all ages, whether it is Medieval or Tudor, Viking or Civil War, do not want this to happen. Our history has made us, and it should not die.So we do want to do something about it. In this case we are re-enacting the Battle Of Mortimers Cross, a turning point in history, that if it had not happened would have changed so much that we know and love these days.
You can find out more about the history of the Battle Of Mortimers Cross over on our www.mortimerscross.co.uk ‘History’ page, but suffice to say that we bring this event back to life every year, both as a fun day out for the family and as a learning experience for all.

Come and see what the battle was all about and how it would have felt and sounded to be there (only on a smaller scale). Feel the excitement and share the pains, all in a safe and family friendly environment.
