'The Society's chief aim is to educated people about the Battle of Worcester 1651 and its ramifications regionally, nationally and internationally. We achieve this through a number of different ways.

We have a wide range of members ranging from professional historians and re-enactors through to families and members of the public simply wishing to support the society and find out more.'

'Nearly everyone in the UK lives within half an hour’s drive of a battlefield. Some, like Hastings, Bosworth and Culloden, are familiar to most of us. Others are relatively unknown. Yet the battles fought on them all played their part in shaping the way that we live today ... Joining the Trust is a great way of learning more about battles and battlefields. Many of our members are experts in their field and are happy to share their knowledge. We stage regular talks and study days and there’s a full programme of battlefield walks, sometimes in areas not normally accessible to the public.'

'Formed in early 2019, we organise monthly talks for anyone interested in military history over the last 200 years from Nelson’s times to the present day. With top quality talks given by writers, academics, former military personnel, and experts in their field with a wide variety of topics ... we can accommodate up to 100 people at each talk in pleasant surroundings, offering a warm and welcoming evening out.'
