A Call to Arms


WHO WOULD YOU FIGHT FOR IN THE CIVIL WARS? KING OR PARLIAMENT?
MEET SEALED KNOT SOLDIERS AND CHOOSE YOUR SIDE IN A VERY SPECIAL EVENT!

The CROMWELL MUSEUM in Huntingdon is hosting a free, fun family event ‘A Call to Arms’ in celebration of 375 years since the beginning of the Civil Wars. The event will take place in the Market Square, Huntingdon as costumed re-enactors from the Sealed Knot fill the square with flags and the sound of battle drums. This event is linked with the Falcon Inn, Market Square, Huntingdon, where Cromwell raised troops. The public are invited to enjoy a drink in one of Cromwell’s favourite taverns, and listen to lively themed talks about the Civil Wars by local Cromwell experts during the day with additional evening events in the Falcon. Craft activities and children’s trails will be on offer inside the Museum.  Entrance to the Museum is free (with a suggested donation of £2 per visitor), and visitors can see many authentic objects on display relating to Cromwell including his hat, boots and powder flask.
