Members of the Taunton Garrison will be back at Dunster Castle on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July and Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 August. A living history camp will be set up on the forecourt of the castle for visitors to experience the sights, sounds and smells of life during the Monmouth Rebellion and English Civil War. Discover what the camp inhabitants ate, how they dressed and learn about the weapons they used to attack and defend. The day includes firing of the garrison's muskets during weapon demonstrations plus the opportunity for children to take part in a pike drill - will they be good enough to be recruited?

Please note that the musket demonstrations will include loud noises that may not be suitable for some visitors and dogs.
