THIS EVENT IS ORGANISED BY THE GAME & WILDLIFE CONSERVATION TRUST
The Battle of Agincourt has come to mean much more than simply a battle in northern France on 25th October 1415 between the English and French. Over centuries it has stimulated literary, artistic and musical outputs. It has also been used as a symbol of British identity as well as of family ancestral pride, even in cases where participation in the battle is dubious.
To commemorate the 600th anniversary this special event will tell the moving story of the build-up to the battle, the unfoldolding events of the day, the aftermath and the legacy.
Agincourt is reputed as the greatest military victory in the Middle Ages and the Long Bow was the lethal weapon that achieved the unexpected result.
