There is something for the whole family at M5 Living History Show. With re-enactors covering Ancient Greeks, Medieval, Vikings, Napoleonic, American Civil War, WW1, WW2 and more besides, and with battles and displays throughout the day, there’s never a dull moment. The large traders’ area can supply you with anything from a new string for your longbow to a tasty burger or a refreshing real ale. There are children’s activities like battling tanks and, of course, the beautiful gardens for a more peaceful break. As the summer holidays draw to a close, there couldn’t be a better family day out.
