Fire, Sword and Surgery

29th / 30th August 10.30am till 4.30pm

A new event in the Harvington calendar! Fire, Sword and Surgery is a stage show style event whereby the Harvington reenactors demonstrate and tell tales of times gone by.

Our 17th century surgeon will tell you about how he treats the wounded of the English Civil War, anything from musket ball wounds to sword lacerations. Get a chance to see the instruments used and terrible methods to treat his patients.

Watch the dressing of the Medieval knight as he prepares for the bloody battles of the Wars of the Roses and how his armour protects him on the battlefield.

The event concludes with a bang! Watch our musketeers demonstrate and explain the different style firearms used in battle from the 15th Century to the 17th.

During the break our roaming Minstrels will serenade you whilst you soak up the atmosphere in our historic grounds. 

Event for all the family.
