UK’s International Napoleonic Fair this weekend

This weekend is the International Napoleonic Fair, held at Kingston Maurward House, Dorchester, Dorset, on 3–4 october, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the conflicts of 1809. The weekend’s events include the return of the famous 95th Rifles, as seen in “Sharpe”, plus the French Infantry from Napoleon Bonaparte’s Imperial Army. New this year are the Royal Armouries’ original working Napoleonic Guns, which will be giving live firing demonstrations during the weekend, a large model of the Battle of Waterloo and living history encampments, as well as author book signings including Gareth Glover and Carol Duvall.
