The third East Midlands Napoleonic Days takes place at Long Acre Studios, Bingham during the weekend of 2nd and 3rd March.
Organised by local novelist Peter Youds, the event features talks, exhibitions, wargame, bookshop and activities.
This year’s speakers cover a wide range of topics from notable individuals to more general subjects such as medicine, prisoners of war and the everyday life of soldiers.
On the Saturday, the NG13 Wargamers fight a Peninsular Skirmish and on the Sunday, Hands on History is aimed at giving young people (literally) a feel for the times 200 years ago.
Acclaimed artist Christa Hook will be exhibiting her superb Peninsular War paintings during the weekend.
The well-stocked bookshop is a huge draw for enthusiasts of the period.
Refreshments are served all day in the splendidly appointed Café Corsica.
Appropriately, Long Acre Studios is a former drill hall for the South Notts Hussars.
Admission is free. Seating for talks is unreserved, first come first served.
