What you can expect to see

Groups: The periods represented stretch from Ancient Greeks through to Vikings, Medieval, English Civil War, Napoleonic Wars, American Civil War and the two World Wars, with many other more obscure periods as well. We never get the same combination twice, but you can be sure of approximately 1,000 re-enactors across these time periods, meaning there is never a dull moment. Stay until the end for our famous “Time Tunnel” when all the re-enactors march through the site and take the salute from their fellow time travellers. See the Gallery for pictures from previous events.

SUPPORTED BY

We are grateful for the help of Worcestershire Ambassadors for their support of M5 Living History Show. They have been true friends to Worcester Re-enactors for several years and although none of the re-enactors are paid, running an event like this expensive.
