Our aims

Working with the owners of the many sites associated with the Battle of Tewkesbury, the Society aims to raise public awareness of the events of the battle, and to promote the sites as an integrated educational resource. We aim to encourage tourism and leisure activity by advertising, interpretation and presentation in connection with the sites. We aim also to collate research into the Battle, and to encourage further research, making the results available to the public through a variety of media.

Our objectives

  • To promote the permanent preservation of the battlefield and other sites associated with the Battle of Tewkesbury, 1471, as sites of historic interest, to the benefit of the public generally.
  • To promote the educational possibilities of the battlefield and associated sites, particularly in relation to medieval history.
  • To promote, for public benefit, research into matters associated with the sites, and to publish the useful results of such research.
  • To promote greater public awareness of the battle and associated sites through local and nationwide events.
