This year's Battleground show takes place on Saturday 24th November at our usual venue of the Queen's Campus Sports Hall in Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH. The event runs from 10am until 3pm and for the 2nd year running it's FREE ENTRY for everyone! After the success of last year it made sense to keep this in place so we hope you will support us and head along!
We've got 37 traders confirmed, whose details can be found below, and we've got 24 excellent display and participation games for everyone to enjoy. The details for those can be found here
Our popular Tabletop Sale is almost entirely sold out so make sure to have a browse of the tables and maybe grab yourself a bargain!
This year we're proud to have The Battlefields Trust presenting three short illustrated talks. These presentations will give some background to the English Civil War in the North of England, the importance of the River Tees and the implications of each battle for the area, the Royalist and Parliamentarian factions and the wider war overall.
11:00 - The Battle of Piercebridge (1 December 1642)
12:00 - The Battle of Guisborough (16 January 1643)
13:00 - The Battle of Yarm (1 February 1643)
And of course we'll also have some of our popular living history groups returning again!
