After a long winter, we’re very much looking forward to the traditional start of the Sealed Knot calendar – the annual Battle of Nantwich!
Nantwich is usually a muddy affair for us, but it’s also great fun and one of the longest-running events in our history. As well as re-enacting the lifting of the Royalist siege of Nantwich, an event marked by Holly Holy Day every year, it’s also the venue for the Rose Bowl Competition for best regiment – a prize Manchester’s have won several times before. Why not come along, watch the impressive march through the town and then cheer us along as we attempt to recapture the coveted prize!
This year, Manchester’s have put together a special trailer ahead of Nantwich. Hope you enjoy it:
