Overstone Park

A multi-period event held in the grounds of Overstone Hall in August 2012

The Midlands History Festival was held at Overstone Park in early August.

Re-enactors from various eras joined together to portray aspects of British history through the ages.

At this event I was with The Anglo-Boer War Staffords.

Members of a number of re-enactment groups gave displays of the weapons and techniques used for battle during their periods, and staged Living History displays in their camps.

Various groups, from the Viking period onwards, took part in battle displays in the arena.

There was also a combined display of firepower through the ages - I was the commentator.
