Agincourt 600th Anniversary Events! 2015




As many of you will already be aware of it will be the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt in 2015. There are a few events running that year:

Saturday 25th July 2015: "The Big Shoot"-

For anyone interested in Medieval warfare this is a must see event. The idea is basically to get 1000 archers wearing the correct early 15thC kit etc to loose of a series of volleys- something not seen by any margin since the end of the Hundred Years War.

Details here:

Sunday 26th July 2015: “Bataille  d’Azincourt”

The following day there will be a re-enactment of that fateful day:

Tuesday 7th - Saturday 24th October 2015: “The March”

Finally there will be a March simulating Henry's desperate plight as he and his army attempted to march on to the safety of Calais.

    But it's 600th aniversary not 800th, isn't it?
