The Siege of Wallingford will be re-enacted in a weekend of events from 27th to 28th June to commemorate the Civil War, over 300 members of the English Civil War Society (ECWS) descending on the town.

Alongside the Siege re-enactment will be a 17th century Living History Display, cavalry marches and military displays as well as educational visits to two Wallingford schools. Wallingford Castle Meadows will play host to the ECWS battle re-enactment, whilst the Castle Gardens will be transported back to 17th century England to form the Living History Display.

The Castle Gardens will be open from 11am – 5pm daily, with a variety of food and drink concessions on the Castle Meadows, with plenty of space available for picnicking.
