Cavaliers return to Bolsover

MORE than 300 years have passed since Bolsover Castle saw its last Cavaliers.

But this weekend the Merry Monarch’s men will return for a two day event which features horse racing, music, theatre and battle drills.

The vent takes place on Sunday 26 and Bank Holiday Monday, August 27.

Lucy Hutchings, Events Manager at English Heritage says, “We’ll be replicating the fun and excitement of the Cavalier races as our riders compete round the course at Bolsover cheered on by the Merry Monarch himself King Charles II and his courtiers.”
