See the English Civil War come back to life, as an Officer of the Garrison visits Rockingham Castle. Lord Grey of Groby, Commander-in-Chief of the forces of the Parliament in the Midland Counties and Governor of Leicester, sets up an ‘office’ at Rockingham Castle, where members of the public are invited to meet him and listen to his tales of the day to day running of a Garrison. This is a one-of-a-kind event and perfect for families and history lovers.
