ANGLO-SAXONS IN BROADWAY

Broadway Museum and Art Gallery are proud to host the Anglo-Saxon’s in Broadway re-enactment event.

This event will bring the past back to life and demonstrate how fascinating Broadways history is. The re-enactment will be run by the Regia Anglorum society who provide a realistic and captivating experience of Anglo-Saxon life.

Claire Collier, operations assistant at the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery and member of the society said, “We will take you on a journey to over 1000 years ago, when the town of Broadway was a small farming village in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. The Great-Granddaughter of Alfred the Great; St Eadburgha, enjoyed visiting the area and her name has been dedicated to Broadways church.

“There will be a whole host of skills and crafts from the 10th Century being demonstrated in tents on the Green, and an arena for the local warriors of Mercia and their sub-kingdom Hwicce, to show off their combat skills. “

Elizabeth Eyre, vice-chairman of the museum trustees, added, “This is ‘living history’ —a performance bringing history to life for the general public.”

With plenty to see throughout the day, this event will engage all who attend.
