      Hi Alan – glad you enjoyed last year’s battle, because we’re planning to do a re-run of much the same scenario this year.

      Hello Julie

      We will have a living history camp with displays and demonstrations all day, however our battle finale “the fall of Lord Dacre” will be about 3:30.

    Hi, I haven’t attended one of the Towton Events before. I’m particularly keen to do a battlefield walk. It would be a struggle to get there for 9:30 am, as I live in Manchester. Will there be multiple walks? Can you advise on schedule?
    Many thanks. Tim C. member of the Battlefields Trust.

      Hi Tim
      There will be multiple walks between 9:30 and 10:45, so if you miss one you can go on the next. However they are very popular so come as early as you can, if a walk is “full” we have plenty of things to interest you untill the next one.

      Hello Victoria

      The event is held every year on Palm Sunday itself. In 2016 this will be The 20th of March.

  6. Adam says:

    Is the above event still due to take place? If so do you have to book for the walk?

    Time is the battle re -enactment sue?

      Hi Adam

      I very timely question :) Please see my latest post on walks we will be having this year to commemorate the battle. I’m afraid this will be a much simpler affair with no re-enactors village, battle or traders.
