Battle of Southam to be brought to life to raise funds for village hall

Leamington Editorial 8th Apr, 2018   0

A CIVIL War battle is set to benefit farmers in Warwickshire.

Staff and volunteers from the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I) will bring the ‘Battle of Southam’ to life on Thursday April 19 at the Eathorpe and Wappenbury village hall to raise funds for its work.

Guests will be treated to a two-course meal and a talk from author Linda Doyle – an expert on the heritage of the Southam area. She will be joined by Soldier Daniels in full civil war outfit complete with musket and sword.

The Battle of Southam was one of the first skirmishes of the English Civil War, taking place on August 23, 1642, shortly before the first major battle at nearby Edge Hill in October.




Tickets are £12.50 and available from R.A.B.I regional manager Becky Davies on 07730 765 377.
