Opportunity for Sponsors
Marlborough Town Council together with the English Civil War Society and with the support of Marlborough History Society and The Merchant’s House intend to stage ‘The Battle of Marlborough’ depicting various exciting events and activities from the English Civil War of 1642 to bring the 17th century alive during the weekend of 27-28 July 2019.
A similar event held in 2014 brought thousands of visitors into the town, promoting Marlborough and its businesses locally and much further afield.
To bear some of the costs, we are seeking sponsorship for these events which will take place throughout the town.
There will be an encampment in Priory Gardens where visitors will be transported back to everyday life in the 17th century with the large battle re-enactment itself on Marlborough Common involving an hour long display of pikemen, with their 16 feet long pikes, musketeers, cavalry and the firing of cannons - a real history lesson.
We have already received some fantastic offers of sponsorship, but we still need more……please get in touch if you think you can help in any way.
Please contact Clare Harris at Marlborough Town Council by email email@example.com or call 01672 512487.
