Want to do something fun this Bank Holiday weekend? The English Civil War and 4×4 vehicles descend on Northampton!


Untitled-1It’s just three days to go until Northampton comes alive with battles of both the old and the new – as the Sealed Knot performs alongside the ‘All Makes 4×4 Show’ at Billing Aquadrome!

Muskets and cannons will fire while powerful engines do battle at the ‘Muddy Good Weekend’ over the May Bank Holiday weekend of 3rd, 4th and 5th May at Billing Aquadrome, Crow Lane, Northampton.

We’ll be taking part in huge battle re-enactments as Cavalier takes on Roundhead in a fight for the future of the nation – hundreds of soldiers, cannons and horses will take place each day and there’ll be authentic camps where visitors can wander through and experience life in the 17th Century. Drill displays will demonstrate the weapons that are in use and basic tactics of the period, including a fully interactive session for the visitors to ‘have a go’.

The event is open from 10am to 5pm each day, with evening entertainment on the Saturday and Sunday.

The All Makes 4×4 Show will feature trade stalls, main arena entertainment, club challenges, club displays, food and drink court, and on-site camping!
