30th – 31st August
On 30th and 31st August, Chiltern Open Air Museum’s historic buildings will be inhabited by re-enactors recreating life in 19th-century England. From soldiers and a gamekeeper with his hawk to a candle-maker, toll-house keeper and other costumed characters, there’ll be plenty to interest the whole family and falconry displays, military drill and a Radical protest will help bring this fascinating period of history to life.
This is really interesting period of history is often overlooked, despite its profound influence on modern politics. The beautiful collection of historic buildings here at the Museum form the perfect backdrop for this event, where visitors can enjoy the atmospheric setting and exciting living history displays.
