A key role for the Society is in raising awareness of the Battle amongst members of the local community in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire who might otherwise be unaware of the heritage on their doorstep. Consequently, we take our mobile display to a range of local events, usually manned by Society members in Medieval Costume. Recent events have included the Malvern Fringe Festival, Worcester Three Battles Festival, Evesham ‘Wartime in the Vale’ event, Tewkesbury Christmas Lights Fayre and, of course, Tewkesbury’s own Medieval Festival.
In addition, we organise a variety of outings to allow Society members to broaden their own knowledge of the medieval period whilst enjoying each other’s company. Past trips have included the Mary Rose in Portsmouth, castles at Chepstow and Kenilworth (part of our annual Spring ‘castles and churches’ events)
