Cromwell's troops come to Castle Brom

PERIOD DRAMA: The Regiment of Cromwell's Brigade.
TAKE a trip back in time to one of the most important periods of our history this weekend.
Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens is playing host to Colonel John Pickering’s Regiment of Foote - a group which specialises in Civil War re-enactments.
Members will be holding demonstrations, invoking the events which would tear 17th century Britain in two.
It's not widely known that the first skirmish between the Roundheads and Cavaliers took place, in 1642, just a few miles away from North Solihull.
The Regiment will be giving visitors a glimpse of what preparations for the Battle of Curdworth Bridge, fought in the fields to the south of the Warwickshire village, may have been like.
The event will be taking place from 12.30-4.30pm both today (Saturday) and tomorrow.
Further details are available at the official website.
