Worcester Re-enactors new Upton upon Severn Festival

History will soon be brought to life when the Worcestershire Living History Show comes to historical Upton upon Severn.

The family friendly show takes place from Saturday 16 September, 10am to 5pm, and Sunday 17 September, 10am to 4pm, at Fish Meadow in Upton, where the notable Battle of Upton took place during the English Civil War in 1651.

The show, created by Worcester Re-enactors, is largest multi period re-enactment event in the area and is supported by Malvern Hills District Council with a £1,000 grant from the council’s Festival Development Fund.

During the action-packed weekend visitors will get the chance to meet soldiers and civilians from 2,000 years of history.

The event will showcase historic battles and display activities, including Roman, Medieval, English Civil Wars, Napoleonic, American Civil War, World War I, and World War II.

A variety of food and drink refreshments will be on offer at the show, along with a beer tent and market stalls.

Tickets cost £10 for adults, £5 for children aged 5 to 16, and children under 5 are free.
