It’s time… Time Travel!

Costumed reenactors standing in front of a Windmill

Avoncroft Museum in association with Pike and Shott Events will come to life as over 300 reenactors selected from the best Living History re-enactment groups in the UK today, set up around 40 camps in and around the Historic Buildings and structures representing life from the Stone Age, through the Viking era to the 1940’s and the Cold War.

Visit Avoncroft Museum the ‘home’ of the International Living History Festival for an unforgettable family day out or make a weekend of it.

Give yourselves plenty of time to explore both the 19-acre dog friendly site and historic buildings, which will be brought to life with re-enactors who will be sharing the stories from across the years with displays, re-enactments, and fire power!

Experience hands-on activities, from domestic life to battles and explore the historically themed market and delve right into the past over this unique weekend.

There will also be trader stalls, inside and outside, selling historically inspired artefacts from jewellery and hats to handmade tools, costumes, and cloth to historic pottery.

Food and drink including handmade Pizzas and Burgers can be purchased from traders onsite and from the onsite Tea Rooms.
