At Billing Aquadrome this Bank Holiday weekend, cannon will roar and musketeers will volley as an all action battle unfolds when members of the Sealed knot recreate two forces, one of the King Charles I and one of Parliament under the command of Sir Thomas Fairfax and Oliver Cromwell.

Alongside this the 17th Century village will consist of trades who supplied the armies and crafts of the period, all presented by people knowledgeable in their field.

We’re delighted to be returning to Billing Aquadrome, just outside the centre of Northampton, for a weekend of bringing the English Civil Wars to life with the Sealed Knot!

Date: 29 April to 1 May
Location: Billing Aquadrome, Crow Lane, Great Billing, NN3 9DA
