RE-ENACTORS showcased Worcester's history to visitors as part of an event to celebrate heritage.

More than 200 re-enactors dressed in costumes from Ancient Romans to Second World War soldiers and doctors thrilled visitors to the Commandery over the weekend.

The annual Living History event, organised by The Worcester Re-enactors in partnership with the Commandery, featured entertainment such as meeting medieval monks and getting recruited by Royalists and practising Tudor dancing in the Great Hall.

Brian Bullock, from Worcester Re-enactors, said: “The Living History in Worcester event offers the chance to celebrate history in the heart of Worcester and the historic Commandery is the perfect setting.

“The re-enactors all come along on a voluntary basis, are extremely enthusiastic and passionate about the period they portray and have a wealth of knowledge for visitors to tap into.”

Stuart Webb, operations officer, at the Commandery said: “This event is one of the most successful things on the Commandery calender. It is so fantastic to see everybody get involved and immerse themselves in the history of our world.”

Living History in Worcester is part of the Love Worcester Heritage Festival; a week of events from February 14 to February 23 celebrating Worcester’s spectacular heritage in venues across the city.
