“The re-enactors were really delighted to be able to tell the stories of their period from the Romans to the Second World War, and the visitors were delighted to enjoy an outdoor event with so many friendly faces.

Liz said: “We were so lucky with the weather and our survey results from visitors were really positive, even if your English was limited you could enjoy watching the re-enactors, so something for everyone."
