    16. DEVIL-LAND: ENGLAND UNDER SIEGE, 1588-1688

    Among foreign observers, seventeenth-century England was known as 'Devil-Land': a diabolical country of fallen angels, torn apart by seditious rebellion, religious extremism and royal collapse. Starting on the eve of the Spanish Armada's descent in 1588 and concluding with a not-so 'Glorious Revolution' a hundred years later, Clare Jackson will give a dazzling and original account of English history's most turbulent and radical era and will tell the story of a nation in a state of near continual crisis, endemically unstable and rocked by devastating events from the Gunpowder Plot to the Great Fire of London.

    Outdoor Programme Event

    The Outdoor Programme daily ticket gives you access to everything on the festival's massive Outdoor Programme. The child ticket is applicable for ages 5-15; Under 5’s are free

    We have talks on the IPGL and History Hit Outdoor Stages, the Living History encampments and static displays, Speaker's Corner talks, performances from the History Tellers and others, live music, two bars, the Emporium, book shops and numerous cafes and food stalls. Anyone with an Outdoor Programme ticket can access up to twenty-five different scheduled events on any one day, so it is truly great value.

    For those wishing to experience The Trench, Sword School and Children's Creative History events, these are ticketed separately and need to be pre-booked. Rides on the Vintage Fairground are payable at the ride.

    Tickets to individual events in the Hiscox and Smith & Williamson tents also provide access to the Outdoor Programme on that particular day (1 person per ticket).
