“The Civil Wars in Cheshire” evening class at Nantwich Museum.

Following the success of an evening class in 2017, Nantwich Museum is running a further course focussed on the English Civil Wars. Entitled "The Civil Wars in Cheshire" the five week course takes place on Thursday evenings, 4 October - 1 November and aims to provide an understanding of the local war.

Course tutor, Dr Keith Lawrence, will cover the arrival of the war in Cheshire in 1642, the lead up to the Siege of Nantwich and the campaign of the ‘Irish Royalist Army’ in 1643, the Barthomley Massacre of December 1643, the Siege and 1644 Battle of Nantwich, and finally the Siege of Chester and Sir William Brereton’s search for support.

The cost is £50.00, which includes course materials and refreshments. Early booking is recommended.
