2016 events

October 16: Civic reception and King John remembrance - a private function to remember King John

October 18: King John re-enactment - When King John died in 1216 there was a terrible storm. The worst England had ever seen. It was said it was hell opening up to take John to his fate.

This re-enactment will recreate the storm as it was the night King John died. Watch as the monarch’s body is taken from the Castle and handed over to representatives from Worcester Cathedral, where his body now rests, as the storm rages above. Regia Anglorum will bring the night of the King’s death to life so we can experience what that night was like 800 years ago.

October 19, 7.15pm at Newark Town Hall: Collingham and District Local History Society present an illustrated talk from Stephen Church, Professor of Medieval History at the University of East Anglia.
