Civil War History Day – Sunday 9th August

Visitors to Rockingham Castle will have an extra special treat as part of the standard open day on Sunday 9th August, 1-5pm when the English Civil War is brought back to life through stories from an officer of the garrison.

During this one-day re-enactment, castle visitors will be taken back to the mid-1600s, in the midst of the fighting, when Lord Grey of Groby – Commander-in-Chief of the forces of the Parliament in the Midland Counties and Governor of Leicester – was in command.

Meet Lord Grey inside his ‘office’ at Rockingham Castle as he re-enacts life during this momentous historic period and recites fascinating tales of the garrison.

The event is included in Rockingham Castle’s ‘House and Gardens’ ticket – £12 adults and £7.50 children. Family and concessions available. The drills in the courtyard will take place at 2pm and 4pm.

Event included in Castle & Gardens admission ticket – please select ‘general admission’ from the drop down when you pre-book below.
