Taunton Garrison Events Diary

The Taunton Garrison can provide a wide range of entertainment both military and civilian from the late sixteenth to late seventeenth century. We perform various Living History skills, also small skirmishes and weapons demonstrations. We cover three main historical periods - The Spanish Armada of 1588, the English Civil War of the 1640's and the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685.

Our Displays usually begin at 11am, but this may vary.

We have a rolling programme of displays. Please check with the venue to be sure of times.

Note: Event time period codes: 1588 = Elizabethan. ECW = English Civil War, 1685 = Monmouth Rebellion
