It’s the year 1781, just months after the legendary battle of Jersey.  Join the Gunner who  will captivate you with an account of the battle and tell you stories from the Castle’s dramatic past.  But, be prepared to be drafted into the Midday Parade, to hear the boom of the cannon and witness the firing of the musket ….it will be an experience to remember.
