Oak Apple Day 2024

Step back in time to 1660 and celebrate the restoration of the crown on Bank Holiday Monday in a fantastic day bringing history to life in Worcester.

Oak Apple Day marks the historic moment when King Charles II returned to the throne following the English Civil War.

Where better to commemorate this historic moment than at The Commandery, the Royalist Headquarters in the final battle of the Civil War?

Delve into an exciting day of living history for all the family – there’ll be:

  • Fantastic reenactors to encounter as you make your way around The Commandery
  • Living history camps to explore
  • Musket firing in the gardens
  • Pike and cannon drills for children (and grown-ups!) to get hands-on with
  • History talks about Oak Apple Day and the English Civil War
  • Wonderful refreshments available at Commandery Coffee

Usual admission to The Commandery applies. No booking needed, last entry at 4pm. Just turn up and get stuck in!

Even better – if you’re a season or Worcester Residents’ ticket holder, you can enjoy the day with free admission.
