Blast from the past

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

ELIZABETHANS will be du­elling for your en­ter­tain­ment this May Bank Hol­i­day week­end.

The fam­ily-friendly liv­ing his­tory event at Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum runs on Sun­day and Mon­day and one of the high­lights will be ex­cit­ing dis­plays of ar­tillery, from the long­bow to the gun.

Discover how the long­bow gave way to the gun in the ac­tion-packed (and noisy) fire­power dis­play.

Chil­dren can also take part in the Chil­dren’s Bill Drill and see if they have got what it takes to be­come a mem­ber of the mili­tia.

Vis­i­tors can learn what it was like to live in El­iz­a­bethan times, meet beau­ti­fully cos­tumed re-en­ac­tors and visit the liv­ing his­tory en­camp­ment, where people can watch his­toric cook­ing and El­iz­a­bethan crafts, en­joy his­toric mu­sic played on re­pro­duc­tion in­stru­ments and learn El­iz­a­bethan danc­ing.

The fun, ed­u­ca­tional day out for the fam­ily is suit­able for all ages.

Go and explore the mu­seum’s 45-acre site and res­cued his­toric build­ings and see his­tory brought to life. See more at www. coam.org.uk.

Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum will be home to el­iz­a­bethan re-en­act­ments this week­end
