Saturday 19 - Sunday 20 May, 10.00am to 5.00pm
Come along to the Western Heights Open Weekend from 19 - 20 May when The Drop Redoubt and Grand Shaft will be open to the public. Napoleonic and Second World War re-enactors will be carrying out skirmishes, parades, drills and demonstrations throughout the weekend. There will also be a Napoleonic camp showing what life was like for an early nineteenth century soldier.
In addition there will be various other stalls and displays including one from the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership with their Wildlife of the Walls quiz.
We do recommend sturdy footwear as there are many stairs and uneven surfaces throughout. As a result, it is unfortunately unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. Please note there will be firing and loud bangs (dogs) although ear plugs for children and adults are provided.
