This year sees participation from re-enactors from across the world and a new cannon demonstration showing the impact of such artillery on charging clansmen.
The battle re-enactment will be complemented by a series of arena displays and living history cameos in the encampment, including the Prince’s review of the Jacobite army; a cavalry display as the horsemen test their skills; Redcoat manoeuvres as General Cope puts his soldiers through their paces; and the two commanders holding their War Councils.
Amidst the military action, visitors will be able to explore the two immersive military camps and speak to the re-enactors to find out more about life in 1745. They can even approach the royal pavilion in the hopes of meeting Bonnie Prince Charlie himself! Young visitors can also try their hand at children’s crafts, and even train as Junior Jacobites and try out a Highland Charge.
Venue: Greenhills, Prestonpans EH32 9AN
