> Napoleonic Day
The first East Midlands Napoleonic Day took place at Long Acre Studios, Bingham, Nottinghamshire in February this year. The building is the former drill-hall of the South Notts Hussars and proved a most suitable venue for the day.
The event, admission free, was staged in four indoor spaces and featured a six-hour programme of talks on a wide range of subjects by published writers. There were also reenactors, wargaming, demonstrations, art, needlework and book sales.
The day was such a rousing success that not only will their be a repeat, once again at the Studios, but the event will be expanded to take in a whole weekend. (3/4 March 2018).
Speakers signed up so far include historians Andrew Bamford, Carole Divall, Gareth Glover, Eamonn O'Keefe, Jacqueline Reiter, reenactor and expert needlewoman Laura Short, and historical novelists Robert Brightwell and Peter Youds.
The NG13 Wargamers will return to fight "Waterloo: The Fight for Papelotte". There was a lot of praise for the high quality of the figures and scenery for last year's Quatre Bras display.
A new addition will be a section for young people with family activities, games and dressing up!
The popular bookshop will once again sell works by the speakers, plus titles of general Georgian/Napoleonic interest
Tea, cakes, ship's biscuit and light lunches will be available in the beautifully appointed Cafe Corsica.
Bingham is a friendly market town which sits on the A46/A52 junction and is between the A1 and M1, accessible by bus and train. There is free parking near the venue.
