On Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th June, uniformed re-enactors will bring alive the stories of soldiers of the garrison through the ages.
Authentic period soldiers’ encampments will be set up beside Berwick’s historic ramparts and a programme of displays and demonstrations of drill and musket and cannon firing will be staged at locations around the town’s fortifications and at the Barracks, Gunpowder Magazine and Main Guard.
Bands and re-enactors combine to stage a display in the atmospheric surrounds of Berwick's 18th Century army Barracks. The performance ends with the traditional ceremony of Beating Retreat.
