We already have some details for next year: Here's what we know so far. 

Sat 7 - Sun 8 Jul 2018

Battle of Carham

Carham, Northumberland

Major Event

A major reenactment marking the thousandth anniversary of the Battle of Carham.

The battle between Uhtred, son of Waldef, earl of the Northumbrians and the combined forces of Máel Coluim (II) mac Cináeda (Malcolm son of Cyneth, king of Scots) and Owain the Bald (King of Strathclyde) is considered by many to be the reason why the Scottish border is where it presently is.

The reenactment will take place on the Holme, a large field next to Carham church, and quite possibly the site of the original battle (the exact location of which is not known). Both days will feature living history displays throughout and combat displays at intervals leading up to a major battle each afternoon.
