Come watch the "Battle for Newbury" as the Colonial Forces battle with the British Regulars to determine our destiny as a nation. There will be colonial shopkeepers selling their wares, 18th century craftspeople demonstrating early trades, modern food vendors, and Ipswich Ale and 1634 Meadery purveying their locally crafted beer and mead. A great day for the whole family. Come join us for the history, for the education, and for the fun!
