2000 years of history comes to life at The Commandery again for 2017!

Saturday 18th February and Sunday 19th February

(10am - 5pm)

Living History in Worcester is The Commandery's biggest event of the year. More than 200 re-enactors will bring the past to life with living history encampments, military displays, crafts and vintage vehicles in one of Worcester's oldest and most beautiful buildings.

During a weekend full of ancient Greeks, Viking warriors, the two World Wars and much more, learn to wield a pike like a Parliamentarian, receive your rations, and discover forgotten children's games.

Organised by The Commandery in partnership with The Worcester Re-enactors. Living History in Worcester is part of the Love Worcester Heritage Festival; a week of events in heritage venues across the City from 18th - 26th February 2017.
