Welcome to the Simon de Montfort Society
The Simon de Montfort Society is a heritage and educational charity, registered in the UK, affiliated to the Battlefields Trust and a member of the Three Battles Consortium. The Society’s programme includes regular monthly lecture meetings with an historical theme, visits to sites of particular historical interest, social events, an annual day-school and our traditional wreath-laying ceremony, service and battlefield walk on the weekend nearest to the anniversary of Earl Simon’s death at the Battle of Evesham.
We publish “The Lion” magazine, our newsletter, three times a year. We also publish books and leaflets, including Dr Patrick Rooke’s recent biography of Simon de Montfort.
We seek to protect and preserve the site of the Battle of Evesham and other places connected with Simon de Montfort. We expand education resources, making them available to students of all ages and to encourage further research into the thirteenth century, and arrange visits to places with medieval connections. In December each year we hold a St Nicholas Supper.
