A re-enactment of life in 17th Century life in Cornwall is being held to mark the end of the English Civil War.
About 1,500 starving Royalists surrendered after a 155-day siege
It is being held at Pendennis Castle in Falmouth, which was one of the last Royalist strongholds to surrender.
Combat displays will show the loyal garrison trying to protect the castle against Sir Thomas Fairfax's New Model Army for the Parliamentarians.
It is part of a living history weekend by English Heritage to mark the 360th anniversary of the end of the war.
The castle's elevated position overlooking Falmouth meant it was a perfect place for defending the fortress when the parliamentary army attacked from the sea and surrounding land.
About 1,500 men, women and children survived a 155 day siege at the castle before being forced to surrender because of starvation.
The final negotiations and surrender by Sir John Arundel of Trerice will also be recreated.
