If history is your thing then hop into the Through The Ages time machine at Central Park in Boston on Saturday and Sunday, July 6 and 7. The park will be taken over by different re-enactment groups so you can step back to the time of the Vikings, Victorians, Boston’s own medieval Knights of Skirbeck, gladiators and Georgian Red Coats.

You can watch them at work, play and… WAR!

Walk through the villages frozen in time, see the natives working in their steamy kitchens, watch the blacksmith at work in his smoky forge, children can take part in gladiator training, have fun in the dressing-up area and watch thrilling battle re-enactments.

This is a free event organised by the Boston Borough Council events team and Boston Town Area Committee.
