Step back in time at Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July and see one of the UK’s top re-enactment groups re-create life in the 18th century.


Back by popular demand, “Lace Wars” living history group will be demonstrating military and civilian life during the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, when English Redcoats fought Scottish Highlanders and French troops for the throne of England.


This is one of the largest re-enactments at Avoncroft and visitors can watch the action unfold with skirmishes between Redcoats and Jacobites, take part in drills, tour the living history camps and chat to re-enactors.


Famous for the authenticity of their demonstrations, Lace Wars re-enactors recreate life in the mid-eighteenth century as realistically as possible.  Shunning most modern methods and technology during their stay at the Museum, they eat, cook and live as they would have done over 250 years ago.


Friendly dogs on leads are welcome in the grounds of Avoncroft Museum and visitors can bring a picnic or take a relaxing break the Museum’s award-winning Tea Room.
