Come and meet the characters at Elizabeth Castle. Living History at the Castle takes place on selected days throughout the week from March until November.
THE MASTER GUNNER
Join the Master Gunner at midday on the Parade Ground, where he’ll give you a flavour of the Castle’s dramatic and distinguished past. Beware though, that you may be recruited into the battalion and put though your paces in military drill, before being marching to the Cockpit to prepare the signal gun for firing at 1pm. The Master Gunner may be found in the Lower Ward or on the Green from 2pm, demonstrating his expertise with the renowned ‘Brown Bess’ flintlock musket. Be prepared to cover your ears!
Performance times vary
Living History takes place at the Castle on Monday to Saturday from April to October, and on most Sundays in July and August. To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you call the Castle before you visit to check on the day's performance times. Tel: 01534 723971.
