HUNDREDS of people poured into a Worcester museum to meet re-enactors from across the ages.

More than 200 re-enactors took part in the Living History at The Commandery event, depicting over 2,000 years of history.

The Commandery, in Sidbury, Worcester, has hosted the weekend event for three years, with organisers claiming that this year has been their most popular yet.

It was co-organised by Worcester Re-enactors, who also held activities at Tudor House and Greyfriars, as part of the Living History in Worcester weekend.

Sarah Bourne, building and events co-ordinator for The Commandery, said: "It's been really popular and getting more so.

"There's something for everybody. You come and lose yourself in history. It's like stepping back through the history books.

"We've had hundreds of people through the door, more than last year. It's been non-stop today [Saturday].

"You see things brought to life. If you like history it's great. There are lots of guns, but it's not all guns.

"We have re-enactors providing social history on what it was like to be poor for the Victorians."

Ms Bourne added that there are activities for children as well as adults, providing a great day of family entertainment.

The outfits worn by re-enactors at The Commandery spanned a 2,000 year period, from the Ancient Greeks to WW2 soldiers.

There are English Civil War pike drills, a Punch and Judy show, a Victorian Magic Lantern Show, a Viking shield wall and dancing, at The Commandery this weekend.

Tudor House and Greyfriars, both in Friar Street, Worcester, have also hosted events this weekend.

Tudor House was filled with WW1 re-enactors, while Greyfriars held an event on Saturday, February 18, with enthusiasts depicting the Tudor period, the 17th century, Georgian Britain and the 1940s.

Visitors from within the city were able to enter the event for free but those from outside Worcester were charged.

Worcester Re-enactors used to hold the living history event at Worcester Guildhall before it moved to The Commandery.
