It is October 1642. The 500 men of Lord Robartes Regiment, part of the newly formed Parliamentary Army, stand firm in the face of the advancing Royalist troops at the Battle of Edgehill, the first major engagement of the English Civil War.


This day is the culmination of religious, social, economic and political tensions that have torn the country in two, setting brother against brother and leading the country into some 18 years of civil war and resulting in the death of a king and the setting up of a republic.


For Lord John Robartes, a Cornish Member of Parliament, and his regiment Edgehill marks the start of a journey that would see them fight in many major engagements across the country until being absorbed into Parliament’s New Model Army under Oliver Cromwell on its formation in 1644.


Nearly 370 years later and the re-enactors of Lord Robarte’s Regiment (part of Waller’s Brigade of the Army of Parliament in the Sealed Knot) seek to recreate a key period in our history that shaped many of the freedoms we enjoy today.


We want to help inform, educate and yes, entertain too.


Come and experience the sights and sounds of the battlefield in full scale battles or skirmishes.


Add something special to your event or venue with a drill display showing the different arms and/or our impressive  ‘living history’ gives a fantastic insight into every day life in the 17th century. Enquire about booking us.


Or bring history to life in the classroom. Talk to us about our school visits.
