Battle of Dunbar 16th /17th September 2016

The Scottish Battlefields Trust is proud to have invited the English Civil War Society (ECWS) to bring the Battle of Dunbar to life for the first of our exciting East Lothian Battle Weekends. Their local regiment, the Earl of Loudoun's Regiment of Foote will be hosting ECWS members from across the UK to provide the biggest battle event in Scotland this year.

 

There will be drill displays, a fascinating living history encampment, childrens' activities and some great food and drink. But most importantly of all, there will be two spectacular battle recreations, each with cannon, foot and horse.

 

On Saturday, watch as Cromwell's exhausted troops are driven back to Dunbar by the triumphant Scots.

 

Then on Sunday, witness the dramatic turnaround as the Scottish Army is surprised by a bold and devastating attack.
