Bringing history to life at Hole Park
Battle will once again commence at one of the biggest and best Napoleonic re-enactment events in Kent on Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September in the impressive grounds of the Hole Park Estate in Rolvenden, when visitors can witness one of the most colourful periods of history as the Napoleonic Association of Great Britain recreates the lives of soldiers, including some on horseback, during the Napoleonic Wars.
Watch exciting battle re-enactments with cannon fire and talk to the actors as you walk through the living history encampments. As well as thrilling demonstrations of Cavalry arms skills, drills, artillery displays, parades and skirmishes look out for the beautifully dressed Regency ladies, who will be bringing a touch of Jane Eyre to Hole Park. Included in the admission ticket the Napoleonic Re-enactment Weekend – £7.50 adults and £1 for children aged 5-16 – will be entry into the award-winning Hole Park Gardens.
