Basing House Civil War Society Re-enactment Weekend

Come along on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September as the English Civil War Society join us at Basing House for a packed itinerary of re-enactment and historical entertainment.

The Marquess of Winchester’s splendid residence was besieged three times during the English Civil War, finally falling to Oliver Cromwell in October 1645. The house was then completely destroyed with many of the bricks being used to rebuild the surrounding local village of Old Basing. 

The Marquess of Winchester’s Regiment will be returning to their spiritual home over this weekend to commemorate this event and to show aspects of life, both military and civilian, of the period. They will be joined by friends from other regiments of both the King’s Army and the Roundhead Association. Throughout the weekend there will drill displays and skirmish re-enactments, plus a living history display running the whole time the site is open.

The weekend will conclude with a short ceremony to remember the events which happened there in the 1640s and to lower the Royal Standard and lodge it for safe keeping over the winter.
