Great Torrington History Alive

Time Period: English Civil War – Stuarts

Performer / Organiser: Great Torrington, Wardour Garrison

10th September 2022 at Great Torrington, Devon

Our History Alive event showcases the town’s rich heritage which dates all the way back to the 8th century AD.

There will be plenty of free, fun, educational and interactive activities to highlight important milestones experienced by our hugely significant Northern Devon Market Town throughout the ages.

Living history re-enactments, a 1st World War recruitment drive, guides dressed in period costume, a costumed bowls competition, talks and guided tours of the Rolle Canal and Tarka Valley Railway, displays and exhibitions, a costumed market day and an oral history project focussing on the town’s industrial history as a glove-making centre.

Free entry to Dartington Crystal’s Visitor Centre and the Landmark Trust’s “Cawsey House”, an elegant late-Stuart townhouse, which will be open to the public as part of Heritage Open Days 2022. A free shuttle bus will be running between the town centre and RHS Rosemoor where the Wardour Garrison, a 17th century living history group will be stationed for the weekend.
