The Earl of Manchester’s Musketeers are top dogs – for the sixth year running!


Northampton is a town crammed with English Civil War history – and this May Bank Holiday weekend the Armie of Parliament returned after 369 years.

Billing Aquadrome is a fantastic holiday park just outside of  the town and over the three day weekend it played host to hundreds of Roundhead re-enactors from the Sealed Knot, who arrived to do battle and train for the re-enactment season ahead.

It was also the venue for the annual musket and pike competitions, where different regiments compete for the honour of being the army’s best troops. Our musketeers were defending their title for the fifth time, having won the competition since 2009 – could they be victorious again? And how will our brand new musketeers fare against teams from other regiments? Find out in our fantastic video…
