Calendar of events 2020


It is with great regret that the Committee of the Simon de Montfort Society has been forced by current circumstances to put our programme for the rest of the year on hold. Monthly lecture meetings, planned outings and, especially, our Annual General Meeting in April, can no longer go ahead as planned. As circumstances change we will see if it will be possible to hold our AGM later in 2020.

We hope still to be able to be able to hold our August wreath-laying, although it may be in a restricted format, and we may be able to go ahead with the St Nicholas Supper. As yet we cannot guarantee this and full information will be emailed out as the year progresses. We are unable to say at this stage whether there will be a 2020 day school. We will be publishing The Lion and we will be pressing on with our planned programme of publications. We will be making greater use of our website during this period so please occasionally check here.

As a registered charity it is our duty to make The Charity Commission aware of our decisions and we are seeking their confirmation that these arrangements are acceptable in these unusual circumstances.    

If you have any queries, or would like further information, please do not hesitate to email on:                                                                                        

I hope you all stay well and happy.        


With bulldog-like tenacity Mick Hurst, a director of the Battle of Evesham Ltd, has determined to fill Evesham town centre with market stalls, including medieval and modern, arts and crafts, food and drink, on Saturday September 12th 2020 and Sunday September 13th 2020. There will be performances from medieval musicians and dancers to entertain visitors. Medieval knights will demonstrate their weapons and armour and you will have an opportunity to visit their camp to see how they lived. The Simon de Montfort Society will be hosting a stand and our volunteers will be very happy to talk to you about Simon de Montfort, his life and times.


Medieval Market and Banquet in Evesham, May 8th and 9th 2021.

The Battle of Evesham will be back on August 7th and 8th 2021 with re-enactment, living history, medieval fayre and medieval mayhem. There will be a wreath-laying ceremony in memory of those who died at the Battle of Evesham and once again the Simon de Montfort Society will be glad to welcome you to their stand.
