PEOPLE in Tenbury will get the chance to find out more about an important battle not far away that took place nearly 500 years ago.

Paul Harding of Discover History will be making a very welcome return to the History Talks evenings.

Paul and Helen Harding established Discover History in 2003 and their enthusiasm for all aspects of the past is infectious.

His own enthusiastic style and as an excellent and extremely knowledgeable living history specialist, he will be bringing to life the first skirmish of the English Civil War in Worcestershire.

‘The Battle of Powick Bridge’ which took place on September 23, 1642.

Discover History was established in 2003 by Paul and Helen Harding.

Both are professional historical performers that like to concentrate on providing historical accuracy and authenticity through demonstrating the personal lives of how our ancestors lived, worked and enjoyed their pastimes.

From the brave and adventurous right down to the unfortunate, the award winning couple tell the story of them all. Regular clients range from English Heritage to the BBC.

The talk is on Thursday, July 7.

Talks are held in the Pump Rooms, 7pm refreshments, with the speaker beginning at 7.30pm.
