Troops from all over the UK will head to Chester for a battle this weekend.
Cavaliers and Roundheads will recreate the deadly Siege of Chester (1643-1646) on the Dean’s Field near Chester Cathedral.
The Earl of Manchester’s Regiment of Foote and The Sealed Knot will, in full authentic clothing, will march through the city centre to converge on the field beneath King Charles' Tower.
Muskets will fire, drums will sound, and pikemen will clash in heart-stopping skirmishes during the free events.
At 11am, Sir William Brereton will be at Chester Cross, where he will speak before being arrested and expelled at around 11.15am
The Royalist army will arrive at the Town Hall at about 11.30am where King Charles will be greeted by Lord Mayor of Chester, Cllr Jill Houlbrook.
Around 11.45am, the Royalists will march via Abbey Street to Dean's Field and occupy the city.
At 11.50am, Parliament's army will follow them and arrive to start the siege.
The first skirmish will be at noon, the second skirmish will be at 2pm.
This year is the 370th anniversary of the start of the Siege of Chester, during which the city suffered huge damage and its people unbelievable deprivations.
Although one of the King’s most stalwart strongholds and a city rich in English Civil War history, Chester’s role in the conflict is often overlooked in favour of its Roman heritage.
From the house of Thomas Cowper, the Mayor who arrested Chester's MP in 1642 and The Commonhall where citizens voted to stay out of the Civil War, to the tower where King Charles watched the defeat of his forces at the Battle of Rowton Heath - Chester is bursting with English Civil War history.
The Civil War reenactment will take place from 11am- 4pm on August 10 and 11.
