Redcoats living history

Overview

The Redcoats have returned to Berwick Barracks in Northumberland this weekend for a spectacular display of military prowess! See first-hand how the Barracks would have operated at the time it was occupied by the Kings Own Scottish Borderers Regiment. Watch as the Redcoat Soldiers take part in military drills, including live Musket fire, and get up close with authentic weapons and tools used at the time. Potential soldiers can also see if they’ve got what it takes to be a Redcoat in our children’s drills!
